Damp Proofing

Rising Damp

All damp damaged plaster as well as any crumbling brick will be stripped to a height above the damp, and this rubble will be removed
This mix contains chemicals imported rom the UK or Germany (which have severe damp problems), and it will indefinitely withstand a subterranean water column spurting at pressure from the ground to a height of 3 meters.
A special plaster mix specified to that used for dam walls, is then applied to match the existing plaster.
If interior walls are replastered, carpets will be covered. It may be necessary for you to subsequently dry clean them.
Internal painting work is excluded
It was used to plaster the American Air Force Base in Alaska in the 1960's and is still sound
We do not drill holes into the foundation and pump silicone due to the potential to cause internal damage, and the inability to monitor the results.

Parapets

If any parapets are not already waterproofed then all parapets will be treated as follows

A first coat of our high density waterproofing slurry will be block-brushed on.
Then a non-woven reinforcing material going over the tops and overlapping the sides will be embedded in the slurry
A further topcoat of waterproofing slurry will be applied
