Examples of Damp Proofing
Why is damp proofing important?
Dampness issues don’t always appear as obvious as a damp stain on your plaster work. We often find using our ‘DampRot.com Systems’ surveying techniques that the substrate can be affected without your knowledge. An example of this would be a wood rotting fungal attack or woodworm infestation developing on concealed timbers such as joists and timber studs as a result of a dampness issue.
