Damp proofing

Damp proofing is the process to ensure moisture cannot pass through all walls in contact with the ground or floors. Whether you’re having issues in your property with penetrative or rising damp, our damp proofing services will solve the problem. There are many different causes of damp within properties and they all have solutions.

DCM Contractors provide specialist treatments for rising damp, penetrating damp, basement Conversion, condensation, dry and wet rot, structural waterproofing and cavity wall ties. Excessive moisture within a building from either internal condensation or intrusion from outside will eventually cause damp problems in a property. The longer dampness is left untreated the greater the chance of other problems such as wet or dry rot.

We specialise in both internal and external damp proofing throughout Kent and Sussex. We’re experts in the installation of damp proof courses and specialist moisture control systems for both domestic and commercial properties.

We recently used DCM Contractors to resolve damp issues in our property. We had patches of salts appearing on the walls affected and the skirting boards needed replacing. Dean and his team removed the plaster, injected the damp proofing treatment and plastered the affected area. Rotten skirting boards were replaced to match existing. Your team were professional and approachable. The project fell well within my budget-definitely highly recommended.

I have used DCM twice for replacing joists and a damp proof treatment in the garage. I would definitely recommend them. There service is outstanding. They came and gave us advice on what needed doing. They are very professional and helpful. The work carried out was done in a set timescale. The standard of work was excellent and the people who came to do it are polite and friendly. The price for all the work done was very good, and guarantees are included.

My cellar was a smelly, dark, place, which has now been converted into a useful utility room. DCM Contractors took down a wall to provide more space and put in a full tanking system. They always arrived on time, worked non-stop, left things ship-shape and as clean as possible when they finished each evening, I can thoroughly recommend this company for any sort of cellar conversion, large or small.

I received excellent service from Dean, both from the initial telephone call to the investigation to the end of the job. They had to treat the staircase of my house for woodworm and were very well-informed about what they had to do. The man carrying out the treatment also explained what he was doing at every phase of the work. I was happy with the work and thought it was a fair price for what was done.

We wanted to move due to an expanding family but the cost of moving seemed so high. We were recommended a few companies, but DCM Contractors were so easy to deal with from the start we decided to go with them and it is a decision we will not regret-our basement has been beautifully converted -the extra living space means we don’t need to move, kids can stay in their schools and it came out less than the cost of moving-thank you Dean and team!!!
