Damp Proofing
Damp proofing at its simplest is preventing walls from acting like a sponge and drawing water up from the ground (rising damp). Modern buildings are constructed with a tough damp proof course sandwiched between the bricks right around the house just above the foundations.

This physical barrier prevents damp from rising up the walls. Unfortunately however many older buildings never had a damp course or the materials originally used have broken down, allowing dampness to push through.

This is where a chemical DPC (Damp Proof Course) comes in. In simple terms you drill bore holes in the wall and pump in a fluid chemical which reacts with the moisture to form a permanent water barrier.

If you suspect that damp is a present within the brickwork of your house, you must act as soon as you can. Damp is a destructive feature that will only get worse. It will never repair itself.
