Damp Proofing Solutions

Damp Proofing Solutions

Basement damp is not a specific type of damp, but a basement is an area of any property that is always going to be particularly susceptible to damp problems, as they are usually below ground level. Tanking is often used as a damp proofing solution for basements. Damp proof membranes are a popular treatment too. This can either be in the form of the conventional sheets of membrane, or in liquid membrane form. Both types can be applied to floors and walls.


So, in terms of damp proofing solutions, you have lots of options that we have covered in more detail above:

  1. Improve ventilation
  2. Damp proof paint (both internal and external)
  3. Cavity wall treatments
  4. Tanking
  5. DPC (damp proof course)
  6. DPM (damp proof membrane)
  7. Soil excavation
  8. Fungicide-treated timber.

That’s 8 different solutions in all. Bearing in mind the various types of DPC and DPM,  and you’ve actually got many more than 8.

The main thing to remember here is damp proof problems should always be treated on a case-by-case basis, but you can rest assured that there will be a damp proofing solution for every damp problem.Top of Form
