Rising Damp Belfast

Templemore Ave, Belfast, NI
Stronghold Preservation were requested to tender for dry rot treatments and a chemical injection damp proof course during the restoration of Templemore Avenue School, Belfast. The school was closed in 1976, and had been disused and vandalised since then. The concrete floors and masonry walls were saturated due to the existing damp proof course (dpc) starting to break down, and the roof being in a poor state of repair. All window and door openings had been blocked up, thereby reducing any drying out of the building.

Rising Damp Treatment

All existing damp plaster was stripped off at ground level, and a chemical injection damp proof course (dpc) installed.

Dry Rot Treatment

All retained timbers were treated with a preservative biocide treatment, to address the dry rot infestation in the finished building.
