Damp proofing is preventing any unwanted moisture from penetrating the building and reaching the internal walls of a property. Once in a building, water can make its way through the building to cause damp and mould issues.

Condensation is another cause of damp and this comes from moisture in the air inside your home. Continuous condensation can lead to the growth of moulds and it can damage decorations and furnishings.

Fal Joinery and Damp Proofing are specialists working in Penryn designing and installing damp proofing systems to ensure your home is free from damp. If your walls are affected by rising damp, our specialists may use a chemical damp proofing course to provide a continuous and lasting barrier against water ingress. Condensation and other causes of damp will require different treatments depending on the issues.

Any property, both old and new, can be affected by damp and high moisture problems.

New properties have excellent insulation, draft proofing and excellent double gazing, these can cause condensation.

Older properties generally suffer more from damp problems as building materials tend to deteriorate over time. Walls can become porous, roofs can start leaking and can lose their effectiveness over time.

Our specialist surveyor will visit your Penryn property to determine the cause of the damp problems in your property. Following our survey, we will be able to advise on the most suitable remedial action.
