What is rising damp? 

When moisture rises from the ground through the pores of the bricks in a capillary action, it is referred to as rising damp. Unless no evaporation is conceivable, moisture can rise indefinitely until it reaches a height at which gravity intervenes and causes it to halt. Since 1875, every new home has had a damp course installed, which is essentially a waterproof barrier or damp proof membrane that is built into the walls.

We do not use chemicals

Most people are unaware that there are other options besides chemical injection damp courses for dealing with growing damp in your home. If you reside in an older building, chances are it formerly had one but failed, as they always seem to do.

Don’t be duped into using the same technique once more by assurances of low pricing and extensive guarantees. 99% of properties with Dry Homes, Damp Proofing, and Building have been treated, generally more than once, with some sort of chemical. In any new building, a solid plastic membrane damp course is installed. To install your new damp course, we will either utilise specialised cutting tools or remove brick courses.

A PVC strip is the material that is being used as a barrier to prevent moisture from entering the structure. Don’t accept less than the same level of protection against damp that can be provided to new and old buildings.
