We provide a permanent rising damp solution by creating a new chemical damp protection course (DPC) by means of a series of Quartz Cream Injections into the base of the wall.

What is Rising Damp?
Rising damp is the common term for the slow upward movement of water in the lower sections of walls and other ground-supported structures by capillary action. Although rising damp of up to 5 meters in height has been observed the height of rise is typically much lower and is rarely above 1.5m.
In simple terms rising damp occurs when groundwater travels upwards through porous building materials such as brick, sandstone, or mortar, much in the same way that oil travels upwards through the wick of a lamp.
OUR SPECIALIZED APPROACH
In a modern home, we can create a new chemical damp course by means of chemical injections into the base of the wall.
This is highly effective where the malthoid damp course (DPC) has broken down or where the builders had failed to put in a damp course or the DPC has been compromised for some or other reason.
This is especially the case when a stoep or a garage that was not initially intended to be part of the home, has subsequently been incorporated as part of the house.
In historical structures, the bricks are held together by means of clay, lime, stone, shells and even stray. The treatment is technically complex. We specialize in this form of treatment.
