Damp proofing in South West London explained
Damp proofing is the process of preventing damp and water ingress from entering a building. Damp can come from external sources such as rain or groundwater, or internally sourced due to condensation. Damp proofing is achieved through the installation of a DPC (damp proof course) which acts as an impermeable barrier between your home and the outside.
Damp proof courses can be installed during the building process or fitted retroactively. They can also be installed during building works such as a conservatory extension or basement renovation. Damp proofing can also involve the installation of DPC cream, which is injected directly into the wall to prevent water ingress. At Tapco Homedry, we understand that damp can be a major problem for many homeowners in the area. That’s why we offer comprehensive damp proofing services at competitive prices.
How does damp proofing work?
Damp proofing works by preventing moisture from entering the building and causing damage. DPCs are installed in walls, floors and ceilings to provide an impermeable barrier between the outside and inside of a property. DPC cream can also be injected directly into the wall to form a seal and prevent water ingress. Damp proofing also involves the installation of tanking treatments and timber preservation work, which help to protect your home from moisture damage.

How do I spot the signs of damp?
One of the most common signs of damp is a musty smell in the home. Damp can also cause discoloured patches on walls and ceilings, peeling wallpaper and condensation on windows. Damp problems can also lead to weakened walls, rotten window frames and mould growth. If you notice any of these signs in your home, it’s time to call in the experts.
Damp can be a health hazard for the elderly, young and those with breathing problems. It also makes your home more difficult to keep warm and comfortable, which can lead to higher energy bills. And finally, damp can also make it more difficult to sell your home. Getting this under control before listing your property could help to avoid delays.
