Period Property in St Kew Damp Problems Cured

This period property in St Kew Cornwall had damp problems on the ground floor.

Many properties of this age would not have had any damp proof membrane installed when originally built.

To rectify this, we insulated it with recycled, foamed glass followed by an underfloor heating system and finally, a layer of Limecrete screed. This gives you a breathable floor so that moisture does not get trapped.

When the lime has had time to cure, it will be ready for the flagstones to be laid.
