What is a Damp Proof Course?

A Damp Proof Course, or DPC is a protective layer that prevents the damp from the ground rising up your walls and damaging your property. Properties that have no DPC or a damaged DPC will be affected by excess moisture from the ground, which can then damage your interior and result in timber problems too. It is vital that all properties are well-protected with a Damp Proof Course.

Most DPCs are a mortar course with a bitumen or plastic DPC sheet through it. This form of course is known as a membrane and can be incredibly effective. However, if the building has moved, it can result in cracking. Another issue is that the older bitumen can break down if it is old or the DPC is bridged. Damp Proof Courses are required in brand new builds in order to prevent rising damp.

At AD Damp Proofing, we can install a Damp Proof Course that is guaranteed to last. We use a DPC injection which involves us injecting the wall with a water-repellent cream to prevent the damp from rising into your structure. Our team of professionals will ensure your home is kept free from any issues.

Types of Damp Proof Course

There are a number of DPCs professionals may use, depending on their preference. As mentioned, there is the more traditional membrane course, and our team at AD Damp Proofing use a silicone-based Chemical Damp Proof Course. However, damp proofing can be achieved using various methods. If your home is not protected, it can cause serious issues. The correct course will be chosen to suit the structure of your property.

A Mortar Injection is very similar to a chemical course. However, instead of cream or liquid, a chemically enhanced mortar seals into drilled holes in the walls. Once the mortar is in the walls, the chemical from it is drawn out to fill the structure and prevent any further rising damp.

Widely used in historic and older buildings with very thick walls, Electro-Osmotic is a non-chemical course. The rising water is sent back to the ground by a charge caused by copper and titanium wiring.

If you have noticed your building is suffering from rising damp, it may be time to upgrade your Damp Proof Course. AD Damp Proofing are BBA certified to carry out a thorough and professional Damp Proof Course service, with a guarantee of 30 years.
