Damp proofing in construction is a type of waterproofing applied to building foundations and walls to prevent moisture from passing through the walls and into the interior spaces. Rising damp in theory can occur for various reasons such as:
- Failure of an existing damp proof course
- Bridging due to the raising of external ground or internal floor levels
- The complete absence of a damp proof course
Brick, stone and mortar are porous, which allows damp from the ground to rise by capillary action, carrying with it ground salts including chlorides and nitrates. These salts from the ground can absorb moisture from the atmosphere leading to wall dampness in conditions of high humidity. They can also ruin decorations and break down internal plaster. This is why it is important to ensure that you have taken all of the necessary precautions.
