Damp proof cream

Our specialist damp proof cream has been accredited by the leading trade bodies to prevent rising damp as part of a remedial damp proof course.

If you are worried about damp patches on your walls or suspect you have a rising damp problem, then contact our team to find out how we can install a damp proof course using our unique Drywall Silane Diffusion damp proof cream to return your home to normal.

How does damp proof cream solve rising damp?

Damp proof cream works by preventing the process of water entering the home via rising up through the capillaries in brick and masonry surfaces (also known as rising damp).

The damp proof cream is effective because it is injected around 150ml above the floor to form an internal barrier consisting of damp proof thixotropic silane/siloxane.  As the cream slowly diffuses it also releases a silane vapour which reacts with the silica in the masonry to form a water repellent resin.

No liquid is involved so the wall is quicker to dry out and it is not injected under pressure which means that there are no problems with party walls.

Benefits of our damp proof cream solution

Our Drywall damp proof cream is the very latest in damp proofing technology. Benefits of using the unique formula cream as part of a DPC are that it is:

  • Low hazard and non-caustic
  • Solvent free
  • Non-flammable
  • Virtually odourless
  • Recommended for brick or stone
  • Suitable for walls of any type and thickness
  • Applicable to both internal and external walls
  • Backed by a 20 year guarantee

Residual salts after damp cream injection

Following the installation of a remedial damp proof course, residual moisture will dry out but the presence of hygroscopic salts within the wall and plaster may continue to give problems.

This is why we recommend hacking off any affected plaster and replacing it with a fresh coat of anti-damp drywall coating to afford you complete protection.

Contact the damp proof cream specialists

Before installing a remedial damp proof course we would determine the precise cause of the damp problem by conducting a site survey with one of our qualified damp proofing specialists.

If it is determined that rising damp is at fault and you require our damp proof cream injection service we can arrange to get started at the earliest opportunity. Book your property survey today by calling 0800 633 5712 or click the button below to book a survey.
