While slate if impervious to water, over time the slate can crack allowing moisture to rise up the wall. Treatment for this defect requires the injection of a chemical damp proof course. Following the injection the walls are replastered and skimmed for a smooth finish. Now the tenants can continue to enjoy their family home.
