Without an effective damp proof course, or a lack of damp proofing during construction, rising damp can become a major issue and gradually develop within walls. Usually, rising damp is found during a building survey, from tests carried out to the base of the damp walls. In more severe cases though – such as instances where damp has been left untreated for a lengthy period – there can be visible damp patches on a wall. 

Here at Kenwood PLC, we provide effective damp proofing services to domestic and commercial properties. If you need assistance with damp proofing and would like added protection for your property, then our specialists can help. 

To find out more about the damp proofing process and what it entails, as well as, why you should choose our services – read the following post below. If you’d like to get in touch, then please don’t hesitate to contact us via the details at the bottom of this post. 

The Damp Proofing Process

The process of damp proofing walls in a residential or commercial property involves a number of steps, which we’ll go into much more detail about here. First of all, it is vital that the damp proof course is done right the first time; this will help to avoid later difficulties and challenging situations. What’s more, it’ll also mean you avoid extra costs and reinstallation further down the line. 

The initial step in the process is to install a damp proof course by pattern, which involves drilling the masonry at the base of the damp walls. After this, a formulated solution of Kenwood siliconate injection fluid or Kenwood DPC cream is injected, up until the whole depth is completely impregnated. Our process is minimal odour and it cures within the masonry wall to create a strong, impenetrable barrier to rising dampness. This stops moisture rising from the ground up into treated walls. 

Our system, when used alongside our specialist waterproof rendering system, is a dependable and cost-effective treatment method. It will guarantee that damp walls are an issue of the past in your home or commercial property, and you’ll be able to move on with your life. Our new damp proof course will not allow moisture to rise and masonry will dry out. All in all, there are many benefits of our system – and if you need any more guidance, you can always call us via the details below to speak with one of our team.
