Damp Proofing treatment in Buckhurst Hill

Kenwoods have just completed treatment for rising damp within a beautiful detached home. The property built in the 1900’s was found to be suffering from rising damp in various areas. Rising damp can occur when the damp proof course, placed into the wall during construction, cracks or perishes allowing ground moisture to ‘rise’ up through the brickwork.
