Replastering: Plastering After Damp Proofing
If I Have A Damp-Proof Course Installed Does Every Treated Wall Need Replastering?
Specialist plastering after damp proofing is an essential part of rising dampness treatment. The specialists here at Kenwood are experts in replastering damp walls and ensure your property is left damp proof and suitably rendered. A new damp proof course will prevent moisture rising into the walls.
When investing in a damp proofing course, you’re investing in peace of mind that your property will provide you with a comfortable, healthy home for you and your family, or an up-to-standards office for your employees. Correct waterproof rendering forms part of this.
Plastering After Damp Proofing
Why Do You Need Plastering After Damp Proofing?
Rising dampness brings soluble salts into the brickwork and wall plaster, which are hygroscopic. The effect of the hygroscopic salts prevents the existing wall plaster from drying out effectively and therefore replacement with a salt retardant render, such as Kenwood Waterproof Rendering System is essential in order to provide a dry internal finish.

Most other renders in general use are hand mixed by operatives on-site and are measured by volume rather than weight. Kenwood’s Premix Waterproof Rendering System is a key feature in ensuring reliability of a damp proofing system. Our rendering system is specifically designed for use replastering a damp wall, and removes the risk of unsuitable, poorly batched renders, which are commonly responsible for the failure of otherwise effective damp treatment. Kenwood’s waterproof rendering system is applied by our own operatives ensuring complete quality control at all stages.
The Cost Of Replastering A Damp Wall
What Is The Cost of Plastering After Damp Proofing?
We provide a fixed price for our waterproof rendering and replastering works, which, quite uniquely to Kenwood PLC, ensures that once the plaster is removed, irrespective of the plaster thickness, the price remains the same. We do not make an additional charge when the plaster is found to be thicker than expected.
Is There A Different Cost For The Thickness Of The Wall plaster You Are Replastering After Damp Proofing?
When comparing quotations, it is important to note that most companies provide an estimated cost for the work involved in replastering damp walls, normally made on the assumption that the plaster does not exceed a certain thickness (often 18-25mm) and they will make an additional charge, if once the plaster has been taken off the wall, it is found to exceed this thickness.
