Damp Proofing


Anyone can get damp or rot issues in their home, no matter how new or well-kept your house is. These issues can cause serious and expensive property damage if left unchecked, which is why it’s important to call Orchard Preservations as soon as you notice signs of damp. Our experienced and reliable team will be able to implement an effective treatment that works for your needs.

Orchard Preservations has over 20 years ‘experience damp proofing your homes and businesses in the South West. We specialise in both rising damp and penetrating damp, and are able to quickly identify and recommend the best course of action, for you to take to prevent damp from damaging your home


Our team works throughout the South West to offer our comprehensive services. In addition to our damp proofing and timber treatments, we also carry out a range of skilled building works, including plumbing and electrical services. This means that it is not necessary for you to engage separate contractors for these works as all the expertise can be provided in-house.


Rising damp is unsightly and can damage the decoration, plasterwork, and timber in your home. Rising damp is caused by moisture rising up from the ground through the fabric of the house. This could be caused by the lack of or failure of any damp proof course. By damp proofing walls, we can protect your home against rising damp. This will ensure your home remains damp free.


Penetrating damp is caused by moisture penetrating through the fabric of the walls. This could be the case if the walls are solid and have no cavity where rainwater can penetrate the walls or where any exterior protective coating is damaged. Penetrating damp could also be caused by damage to rainwater goods or even the roof. We can protect your home against penetrating damp by curing the cause and repairing the damage.


When you choose to have your damp proofing carried out by Orchard Preservations, you can be confident of a great result and service. All of our work is carried out solely by our Orchard Preservations team, meaning we can promise a courteous service and high-quality damp proofing every time. We are available throughout the South West, covering locations such as Exeter, Chard, Newton Abbot, Dorset, Axminster and Taunton with our competitively priced services.
