I treated and coated an asbestos roof in my garden shed that i share with my neighbor.At the end both of us were very pleased with the results, the roof is now safer as the coating provide good encapsulation and it looks nice too.

Damp Proofing

What is damp proofing and what does DPC mean?

Chemical damp proofing is at its simplest a way to prevent walls from drawing water up from the ground through a sponge-like action; a process known as rising damp. To combat this, modern buildings are constructed with a tough Damp Proof Course (DPC) sandwiched between bricks all around the house just above the foundations.

This damp proofing course forms a barrier, preventing damp from rising up the walls. Unfortunately, however, many older buildings did not have a DPC applied during their construction or the materials originally used have broken down. In either case this allows dampness to penetrate through.

Chemical Damp Proofing Course

This is where a Chemical DPC comes in. In simple terms, bore holes are drilled into the wall through which a chemical fluid is pumped in, reacting with the moisture to form a permanent water barrier.

Kingfisher Building Products stock a range of products essential for any damp proofing course; everything from chemical damp proof injection fluids and creams, to damp proofing plasters and renders, and even drills, injection pumps and nozzles.
