Before the Dehydration
This Grade B listed Georgian townhouse was designed and built in 1817 by Scottish architect David Neave, who worked on many public buildings, villas and small houses in and around Dundee.
The building had only 4-5 owners during the past 200 years, its last owner being James McIntosh Patrick, the famous Scottish landscape painter who spent 65 years in this house, with his studio located on the first floor.
A few years ago the building has been purchased by its present owner in very poor and neglected condition. Leaky roof, dry and wet rot, plumbing problems - they all had to addressed one by one. Rising damp finally has been tackled with the non-invasive Aquapol system.
Aquapol system - Results
The Aquapol system has been installed in the building in May 2016. About 6 months later the first set of follow-up measurements have shown a decrease in the moisture content of the walls and cellar.
