In our wet climate, it’s no surprise that so many properties of all ages and types suffer from damp. It’s the problem we see most frequently, as damp-proofing specialists in Perth, Dundee and Fife. 
 
Damp has three main causes: penetrating damp, rising damp and condensation. But no matter what’s causing damp in your property, it’s not good for your health, or the health of your property.  
 
Damp can lead to damage to the interior and exterior of your home, with sagging ceilings and ugly marks on the walls common.  Damp homes are more expensive to heat and might also smell bad. Dampness can also make it difficult for people with asthma to breathe, and can contribute to health problems for others.   
 
Wet rot is basically timber decaying naturally in the presence of high levels of moisture. As the wet rot specialists in Perth, Dundee and Fife, Alliance can eliminate it – as well as its causes – in your home or business.
 
In most properties, there is almost always a structural defect causing the wet rot. It may be that the wall adjacent to the timber is suffering from damp, or water from a variety of sources is collecting on the timber.
 

Dry Rot fungus is often thought of as a building cancer, rampaging through buildings and rapidly destroying any timber in its path.

The fungus, which thrives in moist unventilated conditions, will penetrate brickwork to get to more timber and can cause widespread destruction of structural timbers, skirting boards, door frames, and wood flooring.

Over recent years homeowner has seen the storage space of a basement being an area they can expand. 

Given the huge rise in house prices it is very easy to see the financial reward that can be gained by considering basement waterproofing and conversion. 

Developing your basement not only adds more value to the property, but increases the space and opportunity to create new rooms to fit your lifestyle or commercial opportunities.

This most common form of dampness in the UK.

As our houses become more and more ‘sealed’ with better insulation and double glazing along with Fire places being blocked, draughty windows and doors replaced, this leaves moisture no way to escape.

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first! Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.

Ask yourself "Is it safe to stay in the house?"

Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.

Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!
