Damp Proof Course & Waterproof Plastering – Croydon
In Croydon, a concerned homeowner approached us for a damp survey with worries about the structural integrity of their property – unprotected walls susceptible to damp. Damp walls not only compromise the structural integrity of a property but also pose health risks due to the growth of mould and mildew. Following the survey, our team set out to address and solve the issue.
Our first step involved a thorough assessment of the property to determine the extent of the damp problem. The walls were found to be in need of attention. To provide the much-needed protection, we initiated a multi-step process. The walls were hacked to remove any deteriorated material. We then injected a damp-proof course to create a barrier against moisture infiltration. Next, the walls were rendered and skimmed to restore their structural integrity and prepare them for the final protective layer.
One of the critical components of this project was the installation of a damp-proof course. This specialised barrier prevents rising damp from compromising the walls further. By adding this layer, we ensured that moisture would no longer permeate the walls, safeguarding the property from potential structural damage.
Upon completion of the project, the transformation was remarkable. The walls that once appeared vulnerable and unsightly now had a revitalised look. The damp-proof course and waterproof plastering not only provided robust protection against dampness but also enhanced the aesthetic appeal of the property. The homeowner was thrilled with the results, knowing that their investment in damp proofing had not only protected their property but also added value to their home.
