There are many different DPCs (damp proofing courses) that you can make use of. Let’s take a look at a few of them, as well as alternative options can apply to your home.
When it comes to damp proofing, it is essential that you do it right. This will help you to reduce possible damage to your home and also maintains overall value. Damp proofing course is can be a great way to prevent future damage from occurring. There are different types of DPCs and it depends on your specific building and your unique needs.
Retrospective DPCs can include physical, chemical, or ceramic solutions. Physical options can be inserted during revamping and they can cure rising damp effectively. The only downside is that they may possibly cause structural problems and damage to historic finishes.
Chemical DPCs can be used to treat walls and create a waterproof barrier. This option is commonly used but not recommended for all the buildings. It can be somewhat expensive, but this is a very effective method of damp proofing your home.
You can also choose to use ceramic tubes. This is used by drilling a hole in the wall that will help to absorb damp. The ceramic tube is inserted inside the wall and it is more cost-effective than chemical solutions.
Some alternative products are also available. This includes a product that can be plugged into your wall, providing a magnetic field to prevent damp from occurring.
