    Damp Proofing

    What We Do.

    As Damp Proofing Specialists, No.1 Home offer the most effective Damp Proofing treatments for your property.

    Damp Proof Course (DPC) – We will install a Damp Proof Course (DPC) by drilling into brickwork and injecting a highly effective and specially formulated solution which has almost no odour.

    Watertight Barrier – Once applied, the solution will penetrate the necessary areas and create an active watertight barrier to prevent moisture rising from the ground into the treated walls, reducing water absorption by up to 95%

    Simple & Neat Application – The process is simple and neat, so you don’t have to worry about a messy worksite. Our team will always pay the utmost respect to you, your family and your property.

    Remove Damp Plaster – The masonry will begin to dry out. However, the damp walls will not dry out fully unless the existing plaster is removed and replaced.  No.1 Home is able to provide this service as part of any service for damp proofing in Bournemouth and throughout Dorset. We remove any of the affected plaster, thereby eradicating any symptoms of damp infestation from your property entirely.

    Re-Plaster Walls – As part of your Damp Proofing Service No. 1 Home will apply a fresh layer of plaster ensuring that the affected surface is left looking as it did prior to the ingress of damp into your home.

    Clean & Tidy – Once your new Damp Proof Course (DPC) has been installed, we will ensure your property is left clean, tidy and damp free.

    There are numerous health issues associated with damp, so it’s always best to be proactive.

    If you suspect that your property may be suffering from the damp issues described above, then please feel free to call No. 1 Home today for a no obligation discussion. As the best choice for damp proofing in Bournemouth and the rest of Dorset, you’re in safe hands with us.
