If a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly – and there is no better way of rectifying rising damp problems than to insert a physical dpc. Dampcoursing Ltd. specialises in this service, bringing the benefits of a physical damp course to an existing property.
It is a popular misconception that the only method of refurbishment for such a problem is the use of a chemical injection method. This is not the case. The physical insertion option is a real alternative, and is far more effective.
offers both options, and will always recommend the physical option first. This confidence in the method is borne out by Building Research Establishment Digest 245 which states that a physical dpc is the only completely sure method to cure rising damp.
Whether it is replacing a failed dpc, or inserting a new damp course into a wall that has never previously had one, Dampcoursing
’s quick and effective specialist installation techniques ensure an effective barrier against rising damp for many years to come.
Indeed, the company offers a guarantee of no less than 50 years on the installation – something the chemical option cannot match.
Jobs range from the individual home owner to the housing association with many properties to refurbish. Barn conversions are another growth market, where the walls never had damp courses installed during construction.
Physical damp proof courses are the most effective solution to overcome the problems of rising damp, and Dampcoursing
will ensure the dpc will do its job for many years to come.
