Damp walls are more than just a nuisance that spoils paintwork and décor. Left unchecked, rising damp and penetrating damp can lead to more serious structural problems and even health issues for occupants,
so early remedial damp treatment is essential.
At Kingfisher we have been developing and manufacturing damp proofing products for over thirty years and crucially we have worked closely with specialist contractors, to ensure that all our systems and products work in the real world.
Additionally, this practical perspective gives us an edge in helping customers to correctly diagnose and then resolve, rising damp and lateral penetrating damp problems.
As with most journeys, it really helps to know your starting point and this is where Kingfisher can help.
In an era when companies increasingly refer customers to find information “on our website”, we would rather you called us for advice.
That way we can fully support you in identifying the source of your damp problem.
Moisture ingress can be hard to pinpoint, but this is where experience comes into play and we have decades of it to bring to bear in diagnosing your particular damp issue.

We are commonly asked how to seal a damp floor, usually in older properties and our epoxy products are the default choice for solving this problem.
Epoxy resin is tremendously versatile on damp floors, whilst being easy to use and saves the soul destroying and expensive work of breaking out old but otherwise serviceable concrete floors.
Lateral penetrating damp is undoubtedly the most common source of dampness in U.K buildings and often the one which causes the most confusion.
This is simply because rain can travel some distance through a wall before finding an exit point inside the building.
Consequently the offending damp patch on the interior wall might be several feet from the weak point on the external face of the building.
The good news is that in most cases this form of damp is easy to treat and relatively inexpensive.
Our range of water repellents includes products which can be applied in challenging weather conditions Stormseal and our high performance Extreme Climate which combats storm driven moisture in exposed locations.
A wet wall is a cold wall. If we get soaked to the skin in a winter shower, we feel cold much faster than if we were dry under a waterproof jacket. Why? Water absorbs latent heat and draws that heat away from our body as it evaporates and the same happens with buildings, only the moisture can be absorbed more deeply into porous building materials like brick and mortar, sometimes accumulating for months in the dark days of winter.
Efficient damp protection can improve a building’s thermal performance by many percentage points, depending on the particular construction.
Due to ADR regs on transport of flammables we can only send 25L drums of solvent product via premium rate special carrier, hence minimum FREE carriage order is 4 x 25L or ring for a quote. Alternatively, you can still collect single 25L drums at our Ulverston or Glasgow trade counters.
