Rising damp is unhealthy, unsightly and can lead to timber decay and heat loss. Because rising damp can carry with it a range of compounds such as hygroscopic ground salts, chlorides and nitrates, it can break down plaster and ruin internal decorations.
In thick stone and brick masonry, and especially rubble-filled walls, Peter Cox can install a remedial damp proof course using their Elektro+ Osmotic System, the very latest in damp proofing technology.
This involves introducing a very small positive electrical charge on the wall to repel the rising damp moisture molecules down the walls and back into the ground.
The installation causes minimum disturbance to the building, and is ‘reversible’, making it acceptable to leading Conservation and Heritage organisations.
No liquid chemicals are used so the wall is quicker to dry out and does not cause problems on party walls.
