Many of you all might be thinking why it is so important to make your homes damp proof. Usually, those homes which are not given damp proof course become prone to dampness. In such cases, high quality damp proof material must be induced into buildings during damp proofing. Make sure that damp proofing is highly essential for those properties which are on risk of perpetual dampness, and these are those homes which were ignored from it.

Mostly people are not aware of how to check quality of damp proof material and which are they? Firstly, you should know the types of materials of which damp proof course are prepared. In this way, you can easily identify and then can fetch your money on right materials. Some of the most popular types of damp proof material required for damp proofing include: Flexible materials like hot bitumen, plastic sheets, bituminous felts, sheets of lead, and copper; Semi-rigid materials like mastic asphalt; Rigid materials like impervious bricks, stones, slates, cement mortar or cement concrete painted with bitumen; Stones, Mortar with waterproofing compounds, Coarse sand layers under floors, and continuous plastic sheets under floors etc. A damp proof material is cost effective and easily available on stores.  

Builders must follow the DPC/DPM buildings construction rules, and in many countries its approval is must before construction. If cost is a concern that becoming a hurdle to choose between water proofing and damp proofing then must consult with damp proofing consultants, and apply a qualitative damp proof material in your homes for longevity and hygienic life.
