Maintenance – Internal Damp, Driffield

As part of the maintenance contract, C. S. Construction received an instruction to attend a retail outlet in Driffield and investigate an issue with the ingress of dampness.

At the site visit C. S. Construction determined that the deterioration to areas of internal plaster with damp along the rear wall of the property was due to a failure of the existing tanking system where the internal floor level was approximately 1.2m below ground level.  This was affected further with vegetation and root growth within the retaining wall. C. S. Construction then liaised with the client as to the best course of action.
