Damp is a problem for many house owners, especially if the houses were not properly damp proofed when built, or if the circumstances are such that the damp simply cannot be avoided. The damping issue does not merely include water and moisture, but also salts that get in there along with the water. This creates patches and stains that look disgusting, but which also can be quite detrimental for the health of the people living in the house, as they affect the quality of air and can also cause mold. This is why the issue of damp has to be addressed and damp proofing membranes are one of the best ways to accomplish that.
Newlath membranes are a special range of products from the John Newton company, which is the leader in the field of damp proofing membranes. Like other membranes, Newlath membranes also offer physical barrier between the damp and the finish of the walls. By doing so, they effectively prevent the moisture from getting inside, and they can even be used on the outside, in order to protect houses which have low-quality mortaring done.
One of the main advantages of Newlath membranes is the fact that they are meshed, which makes them a perfect base for certain finishes, such as dot and dab plasterboard, rendering and plastering. Another great quality of Newlath membranes is the fact that they are made to last. Namely, they will last you at least for 50 years as they are made from the highest quality materials, using the latest technology.
