Damp Proofing

Rising Dampness can develop within walls due to the lack of an effective damp proof course or the omission of damp proofing during earlier construction.

Rising dampness may be found during a Building Survey, by tests carried out to the base of the damp walls, however in more severe cases of prolonged dampness, visible damp patches may appear, along with hygroscopic salts on the wall surfaces.

Effective treatment requires removal of the wall plaster to approximately one metre or higher (depending on the salts within the masonry and several other factors) along with the installation of a new damp proof course within the damp walls.
