What is damp proofing?
Damp proofing is simply the process of making a structure watertight. Building materials and moisture don’t mix well, so in the UK, we need to make sure our structures are well-protected against the heavy rainfall. This moisture can seep into your home through the foundations if you don’t put a barrier in place.
The most common method for damp proofing is to install a damp proof course. This is a chemical injection in your cavity wall that prevents moisture passing through your foundations and into your home. Another method is basement tanking, where impermeable materials are attached to the walls and floor of your basement to channel moisture out of your home and keep the space dry.
