Damp proofing is a protective process to prevent moisture transmitting into walls that are in contact with the ground. There are two main reasons why damp proofing becomes necessary, one is if a property has rising damp from the ground, the other is if it has lateral damp penetration from below the ground, or sometimes both.
The two should never be mistaken because the only things they have in common is, they are both affected by high levels of moisture that originated from the ground. Rising damp slowly transmits up the pores of the wall, whereas lateral damp penetrates more rapidly, through the wall. Both can cause considerable damage to the inside of your property and both need completely different methods of treatment. Damp proofing should only ever be carried out by a qualified company and compromise shouldn’t be considered. We use only the most up to date methods and safest of materials.
