What Is A Damp Course?
When moisture from the soil surrounding the home finds a way into the structure of your home, this creates damp conditions that allow mould to thrive. This moisture can also draw salt from the ground, which crystallises in the bricks, causing plaster to flake and paint to blister.
This is called a damp course and if it is left untreated, it can lead to significant foundation damage.
These damps are formed when the foundations and walls fail to prevent moisture absorption. When you find yourself with rising damp, either in your own home or a home you really want to buy, you need fast, affordable treatment. Look no further than the Attic Insulation in Melbourne specialists to get rid of your rising damp.

Why Choose Us?
Here at Attic Insulation, our team of specialists understand that your home is your best asset you have ever invested in. We know that no two properties are exactly same; that’s why we offer multiple repair and treatment methods, to ensure we deliver a solution that’s right for your home.
The first method we use involves the replacement of the original damp-proof course. Damp-proof coursing is a physical barrier that prevents water and soluble salts from rising through the walls. If it is improperly installed or just worn out, replacing it can rectify your rising damp woes. Our team will remove the bottom course of bricks in stages, clean out the cavity to prevent water bridging into the internal walls – as well as increasing airflow inside the cavity – and relay a new, impervious damp-proof layer before resetting the brickwork.
In some cases, however, we will instead recommend chemical injection. As the name suggests, this solution involves the installation of a silicone-based cream into the lowest mortar joints of the walls. The cream is designed to spread throughout the joints by capillary action, forming a new and impervious damp-proof layer with no need to remove bricks. Chemical injection is ideally suitable for single leaf walls, as well as both new and old mortared walls.
