Damp proofing advice/DPC/recommendations MEGATHREAD

Recommended Posts

Open-ended question, you can spend thousands and still need more or you could change a few cheap things and have no issues.

 

Every problem is different and needs the correct solution.

What would you expect to pay for damp proofing? Can you just have the walls done which are showing damp or all of them? Any recommendations?

 

Get three firms in and compare what they tell you (and don't tell any of them what previous firms have said). Alternatively you can hire an independent surveyor to diagnose (though then it won't be free, but on the other hand you know they are not also selling the product that fixes what they diagnose....)

 

Cost would depend on how much work is needed, so it's impossible to tell you a price on here.

Have you inspected the wall on the outside ? It may be the cement filling between the bricks have dropped out and wall needs re-pointing.

I have used Precision Damp proofing several years ago, and no sign of the damp since. So I was happy with their work.
