Condensation Control

Condensation is the most common type of dampness to occur in properties. It causes the growth of mould on walls, ceilings, furniture and even clothing, causing wallpaper to peel and other issues in the house such as wet rot.

It can be caused by issues such as poor ventilation, lack of insulation and is built up from normal, everyday task such as cooking or showering resulting in large levels of moisture in the air. This poor air quality can cause health issues and is especially a problem for those with breathing difficulties such as asthma. It is more prone to occur in flats and bungalows.

Damp problems can be misleading with people often thinking they have rising or penetrating dampness, it can in fact all be the results of condensation in many cases.

If you feel you have a condensation problem, please contact a member of our team.

"“Nothing was too much bother for James Martin and his employees. They were cheerful, polite and always kept us informed about the progress of the work. On a number of occasions they suggested improvements to the original specification and whilst this caused them some extra work they did it at no cost to us. The standard of work was exceptional. I was particularly impressed by James's knowledge of how to cure damp problems. I would, without any reservation, recommend him and his company.”"

"“I was very impressed with the quality and finish of work carried out. It really finished off the house externally. James and his renderers attention to detail was superb and once finished the surrounding areas were spotless.”"

"James and his team have done a fantastic job installing a damp proof course into our living room front wall and second bedroom. The additional work of a large steel bar which needed to be added in the second bedroom was not too much trouble, and James had a team on hand straight away to have the work done promptly. We are particularly grateful to James and team for fitting us in on evenings and weekends, around their already busy work schedule. The plastering and finish has been completed to a high standard and we would certainly recommend J Martin Preservations to others."
