Damp Proofing

Rising damp occurs when masonry walls in buildings absorb damp from the ground up.

The technical term for this is ‘capillary action’. Because the walls are built on earth, they absorb damp from the ground up. In order to eradicate this problem it is necessary to install a damp proof course.

Apex Damp & Wall Ties  offers significant expertise in damp proofing. Several methods are available, the most common of which is the chemical injection method, which is the most suitable for brickwork. Once the installation of a damp proof course has been completed, the contaminated plaster work must be removed. At Apex, we are able to employ methods to restore plaster work to its original condition
