One of the most common causes of dampness and heat loss is caused by existing Render being cracked or spalled due to settlement of houses old and new or damage caused by adverse weather conditions. During the lifespan of a building thermal expansion can cause existing Render to become hollow and blown from the substrate beneath trapping moisture between coats which expands during extreme hot & cold weather.
In the last 10 years more and more properties have had exterior renovation carried out with Polymer renders or polymer additives mixed with traditional sand/cement mortars. This allows more flexibility and allows the building to breath and acts as a sound waterproof-er as opposed to traditional rigid sand/cement renders with no additives, which can act as a sponge to trap moisture and can lead to internal dampness and Osmosis.
Other causes of failure can range from leaky gutter work, leaky downpipes, poor window sills & coverings or maybe just the existing render has come to the end of its lifespan.
If you are also having problems with rising damp then a chemical Damp Proof Course (DPC) can be injected into the existing block work both internally/externally before or after our application of roughcast/render
We understand the importance of good bead work and always fix our beads to a plumb level. powder coated beads last much longer than traditional galvanized and in our opinion create a far better finish examples of the types of beads we use can be found at Locusrite.
We always seal all weak points with silicone including round doors, windows & sills to block all water ingress.
