We can provide detailed damp or plastering reports (we do not deal with condensation or mould growth) and provide a no obligation quotation, which is FREE for home owners.
Based Near Sevenoaks and Kent, M.T. Ely Remedial Damp Proofing and Plastering Services covers South East London and the surrounding areas in Kent. These surveys can be carried out during normal working hours or weekends at a convenient time to you.
Rising damp can occur within buildings when the existing damp course has become defective,
which results in moisture and salts from the ground rising through the brickwork and mortar joints. This process is known as capillary action. Salt laden moisture then migrates to the plaster surfaces causing saturation and damage.
Defects causing or adding to internal dampness often include high external ground levels, render plastering continuing to the ground bridging the floor and wall joint, leaking gutters and down pipes defective external rendering drainage and defective plumbing.
M T Ely system incorporates Triton Chemical Systems in the form of a siliconate fluid or gel injected into the masonry. Defective internal plaster is removed to an approximate height of one metre, in some cases higher. Areas needing plastering receive 2 coats of specialist plastering system consisting of a two coat sand and cement incorporating salt retardant and water repellent. All rendered surfaces are then finished with two coats of plaster finish ready for the clients own redecoration.
When removing wallpaper from covered walls, home owners often assume the walls beneath are in a smooth condition so they carry out redecoration. Sadly it is often the case that the walls are far from smooth and are often damaged, blown or generally not flush or level. We specialise in plaster skimming or a complete specialist re-rendering specification for damp or structural waterproofing purposes.
