What can water seal solutions do for your damp issues?

Posted by Sachit Patel on June 09, 2011 (0 Comments)

If you are residing in a house that is older than 15, 20 years and if you are living in an area with average to high humidity, it is very likely that you are having issues with damp. This is one of those issues that no house owner can avoid and it can be quite a big issue if not addressed properly and on time.

The damp usually comes as a result of the damp proof course not done properly or being deteriorated over the years. Of course, it can also happen due to raising ground levels, which leads to the bridging of the DPC. There are other possible causes for the appearance of damp, but these can be prevented and solved easily.

However, once you have issues with damp, it is very important to do something about it, and quick. There are many solutions to this, and one of the easiest and the most elegant is a water seal.

A water seal is usually a silicone-based solution that is applied either to the exterior or the interior surfaces of the wall and it is most efficient when applied to both. It does not only result in damp proofing, but it also protects the walls from any atmospheric water, such as from rains and it even protects from frost which can be detrimental for the brickwork.

All in all, it is an elaborate way of protecting your house from damp.
