What is Damp Proofing?
Damp Proof Course (DPC) is a product that is designed to be waterproof. It is positioned close to the ground, within the wall, so as to prevent rising damp, therefore it is an absolute must when building property foundations.
The Damp Course will help resist moisture rising through the structure, protecting it from damp and helping it have a longer lifespan. It will also save you money in the long run, as you will not need to repair any excessive damage that would otherwise be caused by rising damp.
Howarth Timber & Building Supplies offer several types of Damp Course, including:
- Plastic DPC
- High Performance DPC
- Insulated DPC
