Water Repellent Treatment in Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire - Stormdry

Penetrating Damp

CK Walker Damp & Timbers have been protecting properties from penetraing dampness for many years in Derbyshire & West Nottinghamshire.


Penetrating damp can be caused by numerous issues such as:


Direct rain penetration.

Poor Pointing/Brickwork.

Faulty rainwater goods.

Faulty plumbing.


All these things can lead householders to unwittingly encourage rain penetration.


If moisture from the above problems has worked its way through to the internal surface of your home it can then cause mould growth and damage the internal finishes.


Once the moisture source has been identified and fixed, you can then fix the damage caused inside the property such as re-plastering etc.


Below is one of the options we offer for dealing with rain penetration.

Water Repellent Treatment using Stormdry

For treating penetrating damp externally (eg for direct rain penetration), we recommend a water repellent treatment.


We use STORMDRY Water Repellent Cream for the protection of external masonry from penetrating damp and freeze thaw damage.


It prevents rain penetration into masonry materials by lining their pores rather than blocking them – allowing the masonry to continue to breathe naturally.


Unlike waterproof paints or waterproof coatings, STORMDRY retains the natural finish of the masonry so is particularly suited for application to brickwork or stonework.



 Typical applications of Stormdry include:


  1. Protection against penetrating damp.
  2. Improving thermal efficiency of masonry keeping it dry (Energy Saving)
  3. Maintaining thermal properties of cavity wall insulation
  4. Improving flood resistance of masonry.
