The extent of rising damp will be identified with electronic moisture meters. Wall coverings, render/plaster etc. will be removed to expose masonry or brick work.

A new water proofing system will be installed to create a new proof course. Whitesands offers 2 different systems to combat rising damp – Chemical injection and Lectros. Our technician will determine which system is best suited to the conditions.. It is not necessary to evacuate the premises either during or after installation.

All rubbish and waste material will be removed. Render and/or plaster can then be reinstated leaving your repaired wall area ready for redecoration. The modern systems and materials we use are the best available in the prevention of rising damp. Our procedures are reliable and proven to succeed, as well as being safe, odourless and non toxic.

Whitesands Bathroom Renovations are experts at repairing this problem and preventing it from reoccurring.  We inject a unique silicone emulsion through a drilled hole using specially designed pumps to create a new damp course.  The anti-damp chemical used is environmentally friendly.

Don’t Take Risks With Asbestos

Asbestos is extremely difficult to recognise and poses a severe health risk to you and your family as well as those that live nearby your home if disturbed or removed incorrectly.

Handling Asbestos

Handling asbestos must be done with great care due to it’s toxic properties including being a carcinogen. It’s important to know that when asbestos is in good condition, it does not usually present a hazard. However, worn or damaged asbestos poses a great risk to your health and safety as fibres may flake off and become airborne. At that point, it’s possible for anyone in the vicinity to inhale these toxic fibres, which become embedded in the chest. Years later, this can develop into serious asbestos-related diseases, such as asbestosis or mesothelioma.

Grout Repairs

Do you have grout that is fading or becoming patchy?  Cleaning agents can have a detrimental effect on grout, weakening the bonding, causing cracking or sections to come loose.

Call Whitesands Bathroom Renovations and we will have a qualified tradesman on the job and you will back in your bathroom in 24 hours.

 

Grout Sealing

Grout is nearly impossible to keep clean. We can seal it so that dirt can’t impregnate the grout which also repels water preventing any future water absorption, keeping your grout lines easy to clean and maintain.
