Damp proof Course (DPC)

Excess moisture can result in different damp issues causing damage to your home. A damp proof course (DPC) is an important element for the walls of your property. It protects the walls against moisture and rising dampness.

Having a damp course is an essential requirement to avoid problems in the future. Every property owner should make sure that all its properties are protected with an effective damp course.

Advanced Damp Ltd offers free surveys to check and diagnose the best course of action for your property. If your home is lacking a damp course, or in need of treatment, our qualified damp experts will support you in getting up and running with a successful damp proof course in no time.

Damp proof course repair

Fixing a damp problem involves more than simply laying down a damp course. Our inspection team is PCA-qualified, Cities & Guilds-accredited, and Trustmark government-endorsed.

Not only do we lay a new damp course if required. We check for water ingress, blocked ventilation, building and plumbing faults, inadequate gutters, and many other issues that lead to dampness.

Our free survey can determine your problem and show you how to correct it for good.

Electro-Osmotic Damp Proof Course

Our electro osmotic damp treatment uses platinum-coated anodes placed in the wall and a copper cathode buried at a distance of 1-2 metres from the wall.

When electrical current passes through the wires connecting anodes and cathode, the wall becomes positively charged and repels moisture. The negatively-charged cathode draws moisture.

This electrical charge stops the capillary action that causes rising damp, making it a cost-efficient and highly effective form of rising damp treatment.

Mortar Injection DPC

With mortar injection DPC, we drill a series of holes along the base of your damp wall, then injects a water-repellent silicone resin. As this resin coats your inner wall, it neutralises the charge that draws rising damp out of the ground and into your home.

Mortar injection DPC is one of the easiest, most reliable ways of treating rising damp in your home or commercial building.

DPC Installation

We start our work with a chemically injected damp proof course injected into walls to create a barrier against rising damp. We damp proof rubble walls with a mortar injection technique that prevents the capillary action that wicks water into your building.

We can also install an electro-osmosis damp course that reverses that capillary action and pulls the damp back into the ground where it belongs.

Wall Injection Damp Proofing

Internal walls that suffer rising damp or penetrating damp need professional damp treatment. This could take the shape of a damp proof membrane, a remedial damp proof course, or a brand new damp proof course followed by a follow-up damp survey.

Whether the work starts at ground level and moves upstairs, or is restricted to the ground floor will depend on the structural waterproofing needed. Things like air bricks being blocked are one of the frequent problems encountered, as is water ingress at exterior ground level.

All of these things can damage interior walls and create damp patches. The result can quickly become a costly damp problem and a long-running damp issue resulting in wet rot, damp walls, and a mixture of rising damp and penetrating damp.

A Simpler Approach to Wall Damp Proofing

Rising damp and penetrating damp require specialist damp treatment, like a DPC. Without this key step being taken to treat rising damp quickly, damp problems soon build up.

In the unlikely event that we are unavailable immediately, we can offer simple things to check in the meantime. The idea is to avoid expensive treatment for a damp wall wherever possible.

We’ll tell you how to spot harmful water droplets, potentially save yourself money by checking your window frames, and what to look for in terms of your downpipes.

But rest assured, we’re always on hand to accurately diagnose everything from a lack of dry underground space and a blocked cavity tray to the need to start opening windows more regularly and damaged plaster.

A Smart Approach to Rising Damp

When it comes to damp proofing walls, we believe in keeping things as simple as possible. It’s how we keep the damping proofing cost to a minimum while solving damp problems fast.

Because we know what to look for when it comes to damp problems of all shapes and sizes, we never start drilling holes in an effort to keep your cellar dry if we won’t have to.

A chemical DPC approach will sometimes work and produce a damp proofing cost that’s kinder to your budget. We can also carry out a DPC injection course that’s quick and easy with the minimum of effort on your part.

Frequently asked questions

What is damp proofing?

Damp proofing is a combination of methods used to prevent moisture from seeping into a building’s interior spaces. This can involve creating chemical, electrical, or physical anti-moisture barriers. It also requires finding and patching sources of water ingress that can lead to mould and structural damage.

How long does damp proofing last?

We stand behind our damp proof courses with a 20-year guarantee. A properly installed damp proof course should control your rising damp issue for decades to come.

What is a DPC?

A DPC stops moisture from seeping up through capillary action, or “rising damp.” This barrier is usually formed by a membrane built into the walls of a property. If that barrier becomes torn or damaged, we can replace it with a chemical or electro osmotic damp proof course.

Does my house need a damp treatment?

To answer this, all you have to do now is call your local damp proofing specialists to discuss your damp problems.

The proofing call will start at ground level, assess every outer wall, look for signs of water ingress, and look at any at-risk inner wall in your property. And because we only use experienced surveyors any treatment we recommend will make short work issues like penetrating damp and rising damp.

By combating issues with external walls and handling the subtitles of proofing walls, your new damp proofing guide makes sure nothing is left to chance.

From there we’ll talk you through prices for any necessary remedial damp proofing, tackle issues like wet rot, and even help protect your skirting boards and solve poor ventilation that’s causing excess humidity.

Is a DPC necessary?

Dampness is one of the leading causes of costly home repairs. DPCs are required in the construction of new buildings. Damp problems in older buildings can often be resolved by the insertion of a damp proof course or by injecting water-repellent chemicals.

Can a damp proof course be done from outside?

Almost all damp course work is done from outside the building. If your interior plaster has been damaged by rising damp, it will need replacement. But if you catch the problem quickly enough that should not be necessary.

How do you calculate the cost for damp treatments?

It is recommended to take precautions when you see dampness on your wall. If you see any signs of damp, and need quick support, our teams are available for free help and advice 7 days a week.

To make sure we never miss a thing and offer different damp proofing techniques to meet your needs, a full is always carried out. This makes sure our damp treatment can stop both rising damp and penetrating damp with the correct damp treatment for your internal walls.

A damp survey will not only give you a proofing cost from one of our damp specialists, but it’ll also ensure any and all damp proofing work fits your needs. It could be a cold external wall, damp patches upstairs, or a damp basement.

The key point is you won’t really understand your damp issue and be able to prevent moisture rising, wood rot, dry rot, musty smells, etc without speaking with a damp specialist first.
