How Long Should A Damp Course Last?

The chemical that forms the DPC (damp proofing course) is normally guaranteed for up to 20 years.

How Much Does It Cost to Fix Damp in a House?

As you can imagine, there are a lot of different variables that make giving a fixed price impossible.

However an approx guide based on the national average is around £70 per metre of wall treated.

What Happens if Rising Damp is Left Untreated?

If you have damp issues in your home and you allow it to remain untreated, it can be destructive. It can damage your property structurally as well damage your furnishings and your decor.

How Do You Fix Rising Damp in an Old House?

All new Leicester houses are built using the latest in building technology. All walls and floors have built in protections against damp issues and moisture. It is the older properties that were not built with damp proofing in mind that experience problems.
