Cracks in brickwork and pointing can affect your walls’ water absorption. Different areas absorb water differently. Some areas absorb more water than others. This results in damp patches due to the penetration of damp.
Protect your walls and concrete slabs from rising damp and surface moisture by talking to a damp proofing specialist in Pretoria today.
Other times, certain areas might be more vulnerable or exposed to water. The result could be a large, damp spot. Damp patches can form inside the walls as well.
Salts from the brick have been washed away from damp patches. They can burrow through paint and blow plaster. Sometimes damp patches can be cold spots on the wall.
This causes you to lose heat 3 times faster than the surrounding walls. Condensation can form in cold spots where more moisture is trapped from your interior air. Your damp walls are becoming damper in the spirit of “rich are getting wealthier”.
Cracks can appear in brickwork when water penetrates the exterior walls. This is known as the “freeze-thaw” effect. It allows water to enter the brickwork, increasing the problem each day. Mold can also grow on your exterior walls, further decreasing the home’s visual appeal, according to Ray Baloyi from TT Waterproofing, a dampproofing contractor in Pretoria.
Wall Insulation for External Walls
Our solution will prevent moisture, dampness and condensation problems. Our insulation can be used with any porous material such as bricks, concrete or stones.
Wall insulation bonds chemically to the surface, reaching depths of up to 17mm and creating an invisible insulation barrier.
This barrier not only protects your home against moisture but also heat loss. Poor insulation can cause heat loss through your walls. With our wall insulation, this will be a thing past.
External wall insulation can reduce water absorption by up to 95% The insulation is a hydrophobic coating and repels water from rain or other liquid sources.
Insulation will not only protect you from rain and water, but also dirt, oil, pollution, and other hazards.
Insulation material lasts for 20+ years. This makes it ideal for homeowners who want to stay in one house for many years.
Wall insulation can increase the value of your home even if your property is sold later.
The product is a strong insulator that allows your home to breathe while making it permeable for water vapour. The insulation also allows moisture and air to flow from one side to the other. We know that breathable brickwork is more efficient in thermal conductivity and insulation.
For damp problems, a mere 5% increase in damp content will decrease the thermal resistance up to 50%. Wall insulation for external walls can be 100% cleaned!
The product bonds to the surface so dirt particles can’t get stuck to the brickwork. They simply flow with rainwater.
How can wall insulation prevent damp?
Wall insulation can help solve the damp problem you are currently experiencing and prevent future problems. Before the coating can be applied, it is necessary to clean up and repair walls.
Our team of experts will inspect your walls and repair any cracks that let moisture in, as well as repair render if necessary. Then, we’ll apply wall coating.
After the primer coat has been adhered to the wall, the regular coating will be applied. The primer coat creates a strong bond between the substrate and the surface. It also provides a long-lasting finish that is impressive.
Coating application includes protective wall coatings that are available in a wide range of colours and textures. We use industrial machinery to ensure you receive the high-quality finish you expect.
You can inspect the site after the installation is complete. The team will also repair any issues you find.
