Breathable Damp-Proofing for Older Buildings

  • Thursday 02 October 2014

Solving damp issues in older properties has long been a puzzle for those who have to maintain them. Penetrating damp, especially, is a difficult problem to solve. There is a need with older buildings to maintain vapour permeability in walls and, although there is a wealth of waterproof coatings and render options available, there are very few truly effective waterproofing treatments that allow a wall to “breathe”.

Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is an ideal way to stop penetrating damp from affecting an older building without increasing the risk of trapped moisture and material decay. It is a paintable cream based on proven silane/siloxane technology that lines the pores of masonry, bricks and mortar; making the wall resistant to water penetration.

Does Damp Affect the Sale Price of My House?

feature

Go Compare recently posted some very interesting survey results. They listed all the most common reasons why potential home buyers would be put off from making an offer, when viewing a property. The top reason given in the survey, by some margin, was “Damp patches, stained walls and ceilings”. 70% of people, who took part in the survey, said that this would stop them from buying. In fact, three of the top five answers were related to damp issues or their side effects.

This means that, if you’re experiencing damp problems that are immediately identifiable on the first viewing, 70% of your potential buyers would be immediately discouraged from making an offer. Stormdry can help rectify these problems and make sure that your house is being presented in the best possible way.

Using Stormdry on a Wall with Cracks

  • Wednesday 19 February 2014
feature

When using Stormdry it is important to make sure that the surface you’re working with is adequately prepared. Stormdry can bridge some small cracks, up to an average depth of 10mm. It is important to remember, however, that a small crack can be a sign of structural movement that could lead to more significant problems in the future.


Safeguard Europe, the manufacturers of Stormdry, also supply the Brickfix range of remedial wall repair products. The Brickfix Crack Stitching System ensures that any existing cracks in a building are well repaired. The helical bars and CE1 Grout reinforce the wall you are treating to prevent cracks from reappearing and the filler mortar restores the surface.
