Oh Dampnation! Here comes the Damp Proofing Blog!

October 2017 Blog: Damp Bridging and how to avoid it!: There are many reasons that dampness may be transmitted through buildings from one material to another. Capillary Action is usually the root cause, but stopping the spread of transmitted damp can often be quite simple. Although, as in all things, it is usually a lot simpler if thought about before or during installation, rather than retrospectively..... Read More
September 2017 Blog: Drainage Membranes for Garden/Similar Retaining Walls: When building retaining walls in the garden, or for more structural reasons, the addition of a membrane drainage layer can stop a lot of moisture penetration into your wall! Many retaining walls have to not only "do the job" structurally but also need to look good too and membrane waterproofing can help to control moss and frost damage.....

July 2017 Blog: Cavity Drain Tanking a New Build Basement Without Cutting Into The Concrete Slab: A version of the standard cavity drain system which may be installed to damp proof a basement without cutting channels into a structural floor slab. An ideal structural waterproofing system for tanking a new build basement; particularly for mixed construction applications or where the slab forms part of the structural integrity of the building and may not be altered.....

June 2017 Blog: Tanking a House Built Into a Bank -
Cavity Drain Type C Tanking System
: We see a lot of bank houses in the more rural areas that we serve around the Welsh Marches and Shropshire, etc. Traditionally, if the walls have been tanked, it is usually with a render or perhaps a tanking slurry of some type. When we get called in it is usually because this has failed at some point and the building has become very damp or possibly even flooded. When renovating a bank house, and we cannot stress this strongly enough, get the tanking right! MAKE SURE THAT YOUR PIPE-WORK IS RODENT PROOF!.... Read More

May 2017 Blog: Drybase Flex Membrane Installation: We added Drybase Flex Membrane damp proofing to our bag-of-tricks a couple of years or so ago (2015) and it is ideal for certain situations with damp brick walls, or damp stone walls if they are fairly neat. It is also very useful for damp proofing to concrete slabs as a DPM (damp proof membrane)... this type of membrane damp proofing system, when used on walls, can be plastered onto directly....

April 2017 Blog: Benefits of Cavity Drain Membrane Waterproofing: We get involved in all sorts of damp proofing and use all sorts of materials to treat the various problems we come across. We speak to people all over the country and it is fair to say that the existence of most of the membranes we use is still not widely known. Rising and penetrating damp, there is a suite of materials that can cover both of these functions when conditions are right....

March 2017 Blog: Fixing to Cavity Drain Membranes: A common question we get asked after installation is, Can we fix radiators, shelves, etc. to the cavity drain membranes that Conifer have installed? ...if the cavity drain membrane has been used in a basement situation we would urge extreme caution in making any holes in the tanking membranes... however....

February 2017 Blog: Ghostly goings-on on haunted building sites... or simply strapping lads flapping about nothing!: Helloooooo from the other side! (Of the keyboard). A few stories about about old buildings and things that go bump in the day for us! ...Occasionally we get asked by our customers if we have ever experienced anything? Well, we have a few anecdotes, so please lower the lights and prepare to have a good laugh at our expense :o)....

January 2017 Blog: New Decking Services from Conifer Servicing Cheshire West, Shropshire, Mid and North Wales: Hi Folks! As a company we started to offer decking installation and garden design services around Chester, Chesire West, Shropshire, Mid and North Wales. This isn't a 'U' turn, nor is it a great departure from much of the building work we undertake (which invariably involves quite a bit of carpentry); we're offering this service simply because we enjoy doing it and it gets us out into the sunlight now and again!One of the things we've always been particularly good at here at Conifer is making the best use of a space; in renovation work generally,....

December 2016 Blog: Dryzone Dryrod Damp Proof Course Installation: In the last year or so however, we have pretty much switched from Dryzone Chemical Injection Cream to installing Dryzone Dry Rods (Dryrod) for most of our DPC work. These essentially deliver the same product as the Dryzone Cream into the wall but the quantity is always exactly right, every time. They are also a lot less messy to use than damp proofing creams - things move on... ....

November 2016 Damp Proofing Out-takes, Damp Horses and Cheeky Pensioners…: We thought we'd share a light-hearted look at some of the more humorous enquiries we've encountered over the years.Recently we had a flurry of e-mails from suppliers offering discounts on 'basment conversion' products. It reminded us of an enquiry we received from someone who had mis-read one of our vans and thought we offered 'damp ROOFING'. A little further digging and we managed to find a few more amusing slip-ups, so here are our top 5: 1. Typos: basment conversions, damproofing and membrain are the most common! 2. "I have a severe problem....
