Listed Buildings

Damp  is very common problem in listed buildings. This is due to the fact that they are often older and may have inadequate insulation, ventilation and drainage systems. As a result, moisture can become trapped in the structure, leading to damp. In order to prevent and deal with damp in listed buildings, it is important to ensure that the building is adequately ventilated and insulated, and that any existing drainage systems are in good working order. It is also important to ensure that the roof is in good condition and that any drainage systems are not blocked. In addition, dampproofing should be carried out if necessary, and any existing damp issues should be addressed as soon as possible. This may involve the use of specialist dampproofing products, such as dampproof membranes, to prevent further moisture damage. In some cases, it may also be necessary to repair or replace internal and external walls, floors, and ceilings in order to address any existing damp issues.

Protimeter Usage in Damp Surveys

Protimeter is a brand of moisture meters used by professionals in the construction and restoration industry to measure the moisture content of walls, floors, and other building materials. They are used to detect and diagnose damp problems, such as rising damp and water ingress. The Protimeter range includes digital and analog meters that measure moisture content through a range of methods, including resistivity, capacitance, and relative humidity. They also offer a variety of accessories, such as probes, data loggers, and probes for specific materials.
