Caravan Floor Repairs
Modern caravans and motor Homes floors are made of sandwich construction. The floors are constituted of upper and lower sheets of thin plywood bonded to a styrofoam core, while the walls comprise the outer aluminium and the inside wallboard bonded to a polystyrene core. If the bond breaks down, delamination takes place. This is more likely to happen to the floor, which then feels spongy. Delamination can be effectively cured using a specially-formulated epoxy resin, which takes up the void and rebinds the construction together.
Epoxy Floor Delamination kits should only be used by qualified or experienced caravan repairer. The resin, if used incorrectly, can cause irreversible damage to your caravan.

 

 

 

 
To repair a delaminated floor:
  1. Remove the carpet.
  2. Drill holes in a regular pattern to the affected area.
  3. Tape up all floor joints to prevent glue escaping.
  4. Inject the 2 part epoxy resin into holes until resin comes out of surrounding holes.
  5. Insert wooden dowels into holes to add additional reinforcement , similar to steel in concrete.
  6. Wipe up any excess glue.
  7. Allow 24hrs for resin to harden. 
  8. Assess treated area and if area still moving repeat steps 3-7.
  9. Once area is solid, sand back heads of dowels and any excess dry glue.
  10. Relay and fix the carpet.

Damp Proof Testing
 

Free Damp Test

At Newbridge Caravans we believe in helping our customers keep their caravans in the best condition possible,  and offer a FREE damp test in an effort to catch water ingress early on and save on expensive repairs later on. 
Damp is caused in caravans by the sealant either breaking down or being disturbed. This happens because caravans are subjected to varying weather conditions, from freezing temperatures to high temperatures of summer months, here or abroad. They are also towed over varying terrains, which twist and flex the caravan's structures.
 
Damp can mean the demise of your caravan if undetected or ignored. The only way damp can be detected is by using a protimeter, the industry's recognised tool for the job. This must also be used by engineers who are trained and experienced in damp repairs.
Damp is caused in caravans by the sealant either breaking down or being disturbed. This happens because caravans are subjected to varying weather conditions, from freezing temperatures to high temperatures of summer months, here or abroad. They are also towed over varying terrains, which twist and flex the caravan's structures.
This is why it is so vital that your caravan is regularly damp checked to avoid any problems occurring. At Read Caravans we complete a full damp check free as part of our caravan service.
We also just provide damp checks on their own, and from the results of this damp test we provide a full cost of any re-sealing or re-boarding required. If any repairs are undertaken from a damp test paid for (not including service damp reports), the price of the damp test is deducted from the report bill, making the damp test free.
To contact us regarding any concerns about damp in your Motor Home or caravan please Telephone 01495 320111 Monday to Friday between 8.30am - 5pm.

This is why it is so vital that your caravan is regularly damp checked to avoid any problems occurring.
 
 Readings between (0-15%)            No cause for concern
 Readings between (15-20°10)         Require further investigation when                       with the average of all readings taken.
 Consideration should be given to re-checking     the area in three mouths.
Readings between (15%-20%)         Possible early signs of ingress, this needs detailed investigation of signs of water ingress or moisture. Again, consideration should be given to re-checking the area in three mouths.
Readings between (20%-30%)         Remedial work required, there may be early signs of water ingress or evidence of moisture. Resealing and internal work may be required; again, consideration should be given to re-checking the area in three mouths.
Reading greater    (31 % )      Structural damage is occurring, deterioration inevitable. a full strip down of the affected area is required.
Self Check for Damp
  • Look for Signs of Staining on the Interior wallboards  
  • Run your Finger along the Interior wallboards for Signs of Softness or Pitting (small bumps).
  • Check External rails and mouldings for dents and Gaps.
  • Look to see if any internal Screws are rusted.
