LOW COST INSTALLATION OF A NEW DAMP PROOF COURSE (DPC)
The photos shown relate to the inspection of an internal wall in Tooting, Wandsworth London SW17 The property comprised of 2 bedrooms and was built around 1880, The property suffered the effects of rising damp. The renewed damp proof course was installed 15cm above the external ground level. Houses today usually have a clearing of at least 15cm from the damp proof course to the external ground level.
Once the new damp proof course was installed we then used the 3 coat Sika 1 render specification when applying multi coats of render (sand and cement) to the exposed brickwork on the inside on the wall. This in an excellent and proven method used for over 60 years and found used in vaults, coal cellars, vine cellars etc. It may not be necessary to remove the plaster on the insdie of your property as It can be common just to dig up any high ground levels and install a new damp proof course should there be no immediate signs of internal damp.
Dryzone is not injected under pressure. It is simply introduced into holes in the wall and allowed to diffuse. This eliminates the problems listed below caused by pressurised injection.
Where rented accommodation is concerned, the owner would normally have to pay for alternative occupation for the occupier if the work continued for more than a day. Using Dryzone, treatments that would normally take two days to complete can be completed in under a day, saving the owner or housing association large sums of money in hotel bills.
Dryzone's solvent-free formulation eliminates the odour problems associated with some traditional damp-proofing treatments.
