Rising Damp London


Rising damp London can arise for various reasons: the failure of an existing damp proof course (DPC); bridging due to the raising of external ground or internal floor levels; or in older buildings, the complete absence of a damp proof course.

 

Brick, stone and mortar are porous, allowing damp from the ground to rise. Where a DPC is absent or inadequate, there are various means of retrospectively fitting one. A common method is to drill holes into the wall at regular intervals and inject a penetrating chemical into the holes. The chemical is absorbed into the mortar bed, where it dries to form a waterproof barrier.
