Unwanted movement in buildings can cause distress and worry for homeowners. Subsidence, physical disturbance and a failure of building materials are just some of the things that can impact the structural integrity of a property.
Cavity walls have been constructed since the beginning of the 20th century and offer protection from the elements and reduce heat lost unnecessarily from a property. The system comprises two walls, which are ‘tied’ at strategic intervals using a wall tie.
Mould and other fungi germinate from spores, which are always present in the air we breathe! The spores can germinate and grow over a wide range of temperatures, and they particularly like the conditions found in damp houses with a high relative humidity, at temperatures between 0 degrees to 25 degrees Celsius.
The definition of dampness is ‘where there is water in sufficient quantities to cause problems which are unacceptable’, resulting in decorative spoiling, timber decay and staining.
Olympic Construction has been curing condensation problems for over 25 years. It has several cost-effective solutions for homeowners and landlords, ensuring the fabric of your properties is protected, and the living environment for its occupants is healthy.

WET & DRY ROT
Fungal decay can affect buildings of all ages. If decay is discovered, it should be identified and action taken immediately. Fungal decay occurs in timber which has been wet or damp for a long time, resulting in the attack by one of several wood-destroying fungi.
Wood-boring insect attacks can cause structural damage in buildings and can be unsightly. Several wood-boring insects attack a variety of timbers in properties in the UK.
When dealing with buildings that have been affected by flooding, it is important to understand the impact and implications of the water on the fabric of the building and the long-term implications of the repairs needed.
