Twistfix-registered contractors Damp-Tech Midlands Ltd have recently completed extensive damp proofing works in Birmingham to a property suffering from extensive damage caused by damp walls and rotting floors. After contacting Twistfix through our 'Find-A-Contractor' service, the homeowner’s details were sent to registered contractors in the West Midlands. Damp-Tech Ltd. subsequently surveyed the building, issued a report and were selected by the homeowner to carry out the repairs.

The recently-purchased house had suffered damp penetration in several places, leading to extensive timber damage. After an initial survey to fully diagnose the extent of the problem, a remedial plan was drawn up and submitted to Terry Whittington, the homeowner, for approval. When this was given, work began on the daunting project, which included a long list of repairs and treatments.

Several joists and floorboards, had become so damaged by damp rot that they first needed to be removed and replaced with new pre-treated timber. All of the remaining wood-work was then treated with powerful and effective Microtech timber treatment to resist fungal decay,­ prevent woodworm attack and preserve the service life of the wooden floors. Difficult to treat joist-ends were paid particular attention and where treated with deeply penetratin wood preser­va­tives. Air-bricks were installed to the property in order to increase airflow beneath the floors;­ good sub floor ventilation reducing the likelihood of timber decay.

To prevent further damage, a new damp proof course was installed when Damp-Tech injected our BBA certified Dampcure 3000 system. This highly-effective process protects against rising damp, providing an effective and durable DPC barrier for the future.­ A band of damp and salt contaminated wall plaster, up to a level of 1m, was removed and replaced with a sand cement render treated containing the appropriate water­pro­ofing agents and salt inhibitors.

All of the damp prooofing and timber preservation work carried out in Birmingham by Damp-Tech is covered under the popular and independant Insured Guarantees Scheme. The home owner; Mr Whittington is incredibly happy with the standard of work and quality of materials. In a letter of recom­men­dation sent to Twistfix, he writes, “The project has now been completed to our total satisfaction & I would certainly recommend both your company’s products & Damp-Tech Midlands Ltd for the really good service we have received.”
