Damp-proofing without the mess of replastering; ADVERTISING FEATURE: Homeowners across the West Midlands are seeing the benefits of this fantastic eco-friendly system.
Despite bright spells, Britain's changeable weather could trigger problems with damp and condensation, which may go unnoticed.
And while everyone knows the benefits of damp proofing, people tend to think about the mess of replastering that usually comes with a new damp proofing course.
This is where Holland Damp Proofing comes in.
For nine years the eco-friendly company has used a Dutch system, which provides damp proofing from the outside without the mess of replastering.
The Holland Damp Proof system' can be installed in an average house within one or two days at a price that is often lower than a chemical damp proof course. From as little as pounds 1,300 a mid terraced house can be damp proofed for life.
The treatment is a worthwhile investment for any householder, as unlike many other systems it will not need doing again and saves on the cost of redecorating and replastering.
The system can be used for problems such as rising damp, condensation, penetrating damp and mould, and is environmentally friendly.
It can be used on most types of walls and the product is used by big housing associations and councils. The system is also accepted by mortgage companies and building societies.
It works through the use of damp-regulating bricks, which are fitted, into specially prepared niches in the outside walls. Outside air is allowed to flow into the air chambers of the system and out again. On its way through the inside of the wall, this airflow causes moisture to evaporate, therefore drying out the entire wall.
Evert de Graaf, damp proofing expert, said: "It's completely different from UK methods because we do not contain damp using chemical injections and waterproof coatings. We remove it." The reaction of customers is impressive. Marilyn Channing had the system installed. She said: "With the Holland System there was a noticeable difference within weeks. My husband Jon and I are property developers and they have treated five properties for us now. It is an amazing system. The beauty of it is it starts working very quickly and the damp does not return." Solihull Community Housing Association regularly uses the system to treat damp properties. A spokesman commenting on a property said: "We were really pleased with the system, the tenants noticed a big difference within the first few months. There were a number of rooms affected by damp but we were able to treat the problem without any disruption because all the work was carried out externally." For added peace of mind Holland Damp Proofing is a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen. The rapidly expanding company, which regularly wins awards for its success and innovation, now has four branches covering the whole of the UK.
