Chemical Damp Proofing
A damp course prevents moisture from rising into the walls, however because the ground salts have already risen a wall will not dry out completely unless the damaged plaster has been removed and replaced by our specially formulated and manufactured salt retardant render DR5.
Plaster is usually removed to a height of 1.2m, this could be higher depending on the salts within and other factors. Then a damp proof course is injected along the motor joint at the base of the wall until the entire depth of the wall has been impregnated.
Further information regarding our specialised render system can be found under Specialist Replastering, following these works a final skim coat will be applied to provide a smooth finish.
The system carries our full 20 year written guarantee, and all works are carried out to current PCA standards.
