Damp Proofing Devon

Damp Proofing Devon - Mr. & Mrs. Faulkner

Project: Damp Proofing Detached House
Location: Great Torrington – Exeter – Devon
Type of walls: Stone – Slate – Concrete blocks – Cavity
Damp Problems: High humidity inside the house
Built in: 1980s

This house is very exposed to the elements and almost all year round we had a lot of dampness. We’ve had other types of damp proofing done (a french drain and injecting chemicals) but we were never able to get rid of the last traces of humidity on the inside. You could just feel the damp. We were quite eager when we learnt about this Dutch solution when we saw an ad in the National trust magazine. I was convinced we finally found the right solution, specifically because the approach of letting the walls breathe. We were happy they could make it out to Devon and once the system was in place (al done very professional and fast) we noticed the improvements directly. Our house now feels much warmer and more comfortable. I feel like we have finally found the solution we had been looking for all along.
