Is your home suffering from rising damp?

Rising damp is just as it sounds: damp which rises up from the ground. Whilst more common in properties with basements, this type of damp can occur in any property.


Symptoms includes staining that appears to rise from the floor, a damp, musky smell, black mould, and peeling paint or wallpaper along the bottom of your walls. If you notice any of these issues, speak to the team at Probuild Contracts Preservation.


We are fully equipped to identify and remedy any rising damp in your property. Based in Edinburgh and covering the wider area, we are the perfect choice for homeowners, landlords and developers.

Rising damp: a case study

Issue: “I've noticed rising damp patches on the lower sections of my walls, and the plaster is starting to crumble.”

Solution: After conducting a thorough assessment, we confirmed the presence of rising damp caused by moisture being drawn up through the walls from the ground. To resolve the issue, we installed a damp proof course (DPC) by injecting a chemical damp proof barrier into the walls at a suitable height. This created a barrier that prevents moisture from rising further.

We also recommended improvements to the drainage system, and advised on good ventilation practices.
