People often have misconceptions surrounding the price of Salt Damp treatment so the short answer is no, it’s not expensive. And it can be broken into stages to make the treatment options more affordable. Need a bit of a price guide – then check out our blog post by clicking here.
What product do you use?
We use our own Australian-made Water-Based Siloxane Cream.
Can I live in the house when it is being fixed?
Most definitely. The Tech-Dry SA damp coursing cream is a safe, water-based, VOC free product. There are no nasty solvents, there is no odour and subsequently little mess. Our trained and experienced technicians endeavour to make the experience as easy and painless for our customers as they can.
Can you treat the wall from one side only?
It is possible to treat the wall from one side only in most cases. Our estimator will discuss this with you at the first inspection.
Can the work be done in stages?
Absolutely. A part of our free quote and inspection involves our estimators assessing the needs of the house along with your needs and then determining the areas that need to be treated first. We only recommend treating the areas that really need it and can often recommend the rooms or areas that can wait a couple of years. Likewise, the followup repairs need a minimum wait time of 3-6 months before they can be completed.
Can Tech-Dry repair the damage as well?
Absolutely, we employ a team of plasterers and stone and brick masons who can help to restore your home to its former glory. Check out this page for more information
Is there a better season in the year to treat Salt Damp?
It is never a good idea to wait before fixing your salt damp. And treatment can undertaken at any time of the year. You need to keep in mind that often you need to wait 6 months before getting the plastering and/or stonework done, so if you wanting the house to look amazing before the In-Laws come at Christmas then starting it sooner rather than later would always be the answer.
