DIY Damp Proofing
For DIY damp proofing equipment hire , visit Best at hire, your national tool hire centre.
Are you planning to treat damp problems in your home, or any other building, using injection damp proofing?
Damp problems are one of the most frequent maintenance issues encountered in homes, and the climate here in the UK does not help matters. Damp proofing is designed to prevent moisture from passing into the building's interior and making conditions unpleasant and uncomfortable.
If you have looked into the damp proofing costs of hiring a professional company to carry out the job, however, you may well be considering DIY damp proofing instead. We can supply the equipment you need to help you carry out damp proofing tasks.
How to treat damp walls
There are two main types of damp proof course (DPC) used for rising damp treatment. One is an impervious barrier which is usually placed along a bed joint during the construction of a building. The second type is a remedial chemical damp proof course – in which case DPC injections are carried out by a professional damp proofing company, a competent builder, or a home owner who decides to do it themselves.
A damp proofing chemical is applied along the base of walls that are affected by rising damp. This lines the pores along a stretch of masonry wall with a silicone resin water repellent.
Our damp proofing hire range includes damp injection pump hire and damp meter / moisture meter hire. Our battery-powered moisture meter will help you determine the moisture levels in your walls or floors. If you locate a damp problem, our damp course injection pump will enable you to inject an effective chemical barrier below any rising damp – so that repairs can then be carried out on plaster work that has been damaged without fear of the same problem reoccurring.
