What are air bricks?
Air bricks are, in the simplest terms, bricks with holes in them that create ventilation for the space below your timber floor. Without access to the air supplied by air bricks, this empty space can easily become filled with warm, damp, and stagnant air, leading to potential damp problems affecting your timbers. We have extensive experience in the installation of air bricks as well as other effective underfloor ventilation systems to properties across Dorset & Hampshire.
If you have discovered signs of damp in your home, or if you are unsure if your property requires better underfloor ventilation, contact us on 01202 737739. Our damp experts will provide you with leading advice and an honest price!
Which damp problems do air bricks help prevent?
The reason that air bricks are so important for properties with suspended timber floors is because of the risk of damp present without them; condensation forming underneath your timbers will eventually cause your floorboards to rot and the lack of ventilation and humid conditions also makes the perfect breeding ground for the fungal species responsible for wet rot and dry rot.
Dry rot is the most destructive and fast-acting of the two, but both will threaten the structural integrity of your property if left untreated, which can not only prove dangerous but extremely costly to remedy later.
