Damp Proofing:

Damp proofing in construction is a type of moisture control applied to building walls and floors to prevent moisture from passing into the interior spaces. Damp can affect any home or property for a number of reasons, such as:

Lack of maintenance
Poor build quality
Design defects
Deterioration of building fabric
If damp is left untreated it will only get worse and be expensive to rectify the longer the problem is ignored.

Untreated dampness may also cause other problems like dry rot or wet rot. The longer damp is left untreated, the more damage it may cause to internal decorations and disruption to homeowners.

Damp proofing injections are a way of injecting a remedial, liquid DPC into the masonry at the appropriate level. The liquid used permeates the base of the wall and sets to create a physical, impermeable barrier to the groundwater, keeping it from rising in the wall.

Basement Waterproofing:

Basement waterproofing is the term used to describe specialist techniques that stop water from entering homes and buildings. Basement waterproofing is required any time a structure is built below ground level or where external ground levels are adjacent to internal floor levels (Level Access). Waterproofing is of paramount importance to protect against ground water which could bear against earth retaining structures under Hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure can, and often will, facilitate water ingress, resulting in some form of dampness occurring in the below ground structure at some stage in the life of the building. In extreme cases Flooding may also potentially occur.

Cellar Tanking:

Tanking is a term that refers to damp proofing walls retrospectively by creating a complete water-impermeable barrier covering the entire wall. It is usually employed as a remedial method in situations where there is no access to the external wall of the structure, such as in basements and cellars.
