Water Repellent Treatment in Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire - Stormdry
Water Repellent Treatment in Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire - Stormdry

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

 

Penetrating damp can be caused by:

 

Direct rain penetration.

Faulty rainwater goods

Faulty plumbing.

Lateral penetration of dampness below the damp proof course. (High flower beds,materials placed against the wall, cables running horizontally along the wall and nails driven into the wall supporting clothes lines etc).

 

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.

Penetrating Damp - Water Repellent Treatments

Water Repellent Treatment using Stormdry

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

 

-Water repellent applied to external walls - 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:

 

Protection against penetrating damp.

 

Improving thermal efficiency of masonry keeping it dry (Energy Saving)

 

Maintaining thermal properties of cavity wall insulation

 

Improving flood resistance of masonry.
