Rising Damp Proofing Techniques

  1. Damp Proof Course (DPC):

    • A physical barrier typically installed during construction to prevent rising damp from ascending through walls. DPCs are commonly made of materials such as bitumen felt, plastic, or slate.​

  2. Chemical Damp Proofing:

    • This technique involves injecting chemical solutions, such as silicones or silanes, into the masonry to create a damp-proof barrier. These chemicals penetrate the pores of the masonry, forming an impermeable layer that prevents moisture from rising.

  3. Electro-Osmotic Damp Proofing:

    • Electro-osmotic damp proofing utilizes an electrical charge to repel moisture and prevent rising damp. A series of electrodes are installed in the affected walls, and a low-voltage electric current is applied, causing water molecules to move away from the wall surface.

  4. Surface Coatings:

    • Surface coatings, such as waterproof paints or cementitious coatings, are applied directly onto the interior or exterior surfaces of walls to create a waterproof barrier. These coatings effectively seal porous surfaces and prevent moisture ingress.

  5. Cavity Wall Insulation:

    • In cavity wall construction, an insulating material is placed within the cavity between the inner and outer walls. This insulation not only improves thermal efficiency but also helps to reduce the transfer of moisture, mitigating the risk of dampness.

  6. External Tanking:

    • External tanking involves applying a waterproof membrane or coating to the external surface of below-ground walls or foundations. This technique prevents groundwater from seeping into the structure, effectively waterproofing the below-ground areas.

  7. Land Drainage Systems:

    • Land drainage systems, such as French drains or perimeter drains, are installed around the perimeter of a property to redirect groundwater away from the building foundations. By efficiently managing surface water, these systems help to prevent dampness in basements and lower levels.

  8. Ventilation Improvements:

    • Proper ventilation is essential for controlling moisture levels and preventing condensation-related dampness. Installing mechanical ventilation systems, such as extractor fans or passive air vents, helps to improve air circulation and reduce humidity levels within the property.

What Our Clients Say

Anon

Tiles were letting by water in bathroom causing damp issues below. New shower cubicle and tiles installed. Was extremely happy with the work carried out. The office kept me up to date and the engineer was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant to communicate with. Defo recommend.

Louise F

I'd spoken to various companies about the ongoing damp issues in my flat, but nobody was really able to get to the source of the problem until Redring sent over a damp specialist. Finally the issue has been fixed and my walls and ceilings look as good as new. Highly recommend.

Jack B

I met Stephen of Redring this week, by coincidence, a situation popped up where he could help the following day. He and Redring have been knowledgeable, quick to attend and swift in follow up - I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Stephen and everyone at Redring for such great service.
