TECH-DRY ARE THE EXPERTS AT TREATING SALT DAMP AND RESTORING OUR HISTORICAL BUILDINGS TO THEIR FORMER GLORY.

Tech-Dry is passionate about preserving South Australia’s rich and unique architectural heritage.  Their team of salt damp specialists, stone masons and plasterers can protect and transform your very own piece of local history.

Many of our oldest homes, including settler’s cottages, single fronted cottages, symmetrical cottages and villas, were not made to withstand long-term rising damp.  Built using stone and brick, salt damp is a common problem amongst these buildings due to a lack of a damp-proof barrier, or a barrier that has broken down over time.

Seventeen years ago, Mick and Janet purchased a rendered symmetrical cottage in a coastal part of Adelaide.  In recent times, the render had started to blister. Keen to know what was beneath, they chipped away and discovered beautiful local stone and brick.  Unsure of how to proceed, Mick and Janet contacted Neil from Tech-Dry.

Neil was excited by the prospect of reviving this historical gem.  He walked Mick and Janet through Tech-Dry’s repair and restoration process, leaving them confident that their home would be returned to its former glory.  

Tech-Dry’s team of experts removed the render and put in a salt damp course.  After allowing the home to dry out, their stonemasons and plasterers repaired the walls.

Mick and Janet are thrilled with the result.  Their near-featureless rendered cottage is now a stunning home that they are truly proud of.
