Coastal Damp Solutions with Rochester Building and Damp

Embracing the Challenge of Coastal Living

Living along the stunning U.K coastline brings its own set of unique challenges, and among them, damp issues stand out as a persistent concern. At Rochester Building and Damp, we understand the historical and contemporary struggles that coastal properties face when it comes to damp, flooding, and the corrosive effects of harsh winds and salt penetration.


A Glimpse into History

Damp proofing, flooding, and damp control have been challenging coastal property owners for centuries. The harsh conditions imposed by the proximity to the sea necessitated inventive solutions. In the mid 18th Century, the application of repellent coatings began with a mixture of fats and oils that soaked into the external wall surfaces, providing an early defense against the elements. Over the decades, this expertise developed into using a thick solution of alcohol, pitch and sand. The black coating would have been applied with broom, and once dry, it would have been covered with an straw and alabaster whitewash.
