How does damp proofing work?
Damp proofing works by creating a barrier between the external walls of your home and the damp ground outside. This is typically done with either a chemical or physical solution, such as an injected damp proof course. A damp proof course stops moisture from travelling up through the walls, thus preventing it from reaching the inside of your property.
Damp proofing is a requirement in all new buildings, but these damp proof courses can fail. External factors such as broken pipes and poor draining can also lead to the damp proof course failing and moisture finding its way into your property. Once inside, moisture can be difficult to manage and can make your home very uncomfortable to live in. A damp home is also more expensive to heat, so it can lead to rising energy bills.

What does damp look like?
Damp can be hard to spot in the early stages as the damage will be limited to less visible parts of your home. As it spread, the effects will become more apparent. One of the most visible signs of damp is discoloured walls, usually with a yellow or brown tinge.
Other signs include peeling wallpaper and damp patches on walls and ceilings. You may also notice musty smells in your home, as well as increased condensation on windows and other surfaces.
If you spot any of these signs in your home, it’s essential to get it checked out as soon as possible. Ignoring the problem will only make things worse and more expensive in the long run.
