John Newton membranes for all your damp proofing needs

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

If you are living in a house that is older than 20, 30 years and especially if it was built significantly before that, when the building regulations were much more lenient, then there is a lot of chance that you are battling damp. There are different causes for damp and it would be futile to go over all of them in this article. However, what we would like to do is to introduce you to one of the best ways of damp proofing your house, a way that is very simple and yet very, very efficient – damp proofing membranes, of more precisely, John Newton membranes.

John Newton is the leading manufacturer of damp proofing membranes and their range of products will suit pretty much everyone’s needs. Now, what exactly are John Newton membranes? Well, these are physical barriers that are installed either in the walls or in the floor, preventing the damp and any moisture from passing through and affecting the floor and the wall finishes. These John Newton membranes can be used on their own, while it would be best to combine them with other damp proofing methods in case the damp problem is very severe.

There are different types of John Newton membranes, such as unmeshed or meshed, which are used when different kinds of finish are to be applied, but they all have one thing in common- they are without a shadow of doubt, one of the easiest and the most efficient way of damp proofing.
