Specialist replastering is a necessity when dealing with rising damp.
A new damp proof course will prevent further moisture rising into the wall, however whilst the rising damp was occurring it may have brought with it soluable salts which are still present in the brickwork and plaster, this effectively prevents the existing plaster from drying out, so a new salt retardant render needs to be applied, such as Dampcoursings Ltd DR5 premix, this is essential to achieve a dry internal finish.
Dampcousring’s DR5 render is specialy manufactured and contains selected grades of sand with the correct amount cement an added waterproofing additives so to conform to BS 1881.
Most other renders are hand mixed on site. Our DR5 premix is carefully blended and forms a very important aspect of our damproofing works.
Two or three coats are applied, depending on whether the wall is above or below ground level. Replastering is carried out to a minimum height of 750mm or beyond the last visable signs of contamination.
After application of our DR5, a final finish coat is then applied to complete the whole process.
