Damp proofing is the process of ensuring that a home or building is resistant to moisture by providing an impermeable barrier that prevents the water from seeping in and causing damage to the structure. While there are a number of damp proofing techniques, applying a plastic sheet is the most common. The barrier is installed on the exterior part of the foundation walls to prevent water from getting to the bricks and mortar. Other damp-proofing approaches include installing drainage systems, vents, and waterproof coatings. Applying these measures makes it possible to effectively prevent the moisture from getting in and protecting the home from the damaging effects of damp.
Some of the typical causes of dampness in homes are: leaking or overflowing plumbing fixtures; cracks in the foundation; poor drainage around the home; gaps in doors and windows; and humidity. At Watertight Homes, they understand that damp proofing can be a complex and confusing issue for many homeowners and they are always ready to help.

There are a number of reasons for damp proofing a home. First, it can prevent rot and mould. By preventing moisture from getting in the home, the growth of mould and mildew is prevented because they require water to grow. Second, it can prevent structural damage because excess moisture can cause metal to rust and wood to rot. Third, it can help improved indoor air quality. Since mould and mildew growth is prevented the spores that they produce is kept to a minimum. Spores can worsen allergies and respiratory problems. Finally, it can help provide a more comfortable home.
