What is Damp Proof Plastering?

Damp proof plastering is where a specialist plaster is applied to a masonry wall to form part of remedial damp proofing.

This is often carried out in conjunction with the use of chemical damp proof course injection in order to comply with current British Standards Code of Practice. If you feel that your property could benefit from damp proof plasterboard, Prokil offer professional plastering services to prevent the formation of damp.

Our plastering specialists can even carry out a damp survey to determine the extent of your damp.

Why Do I Need Damp Proof Plastering?

Damp proof plastering carried out by our dry lining contractors is the ultimate solution if your cavity walls are suffering from damp, providing them with a sufficient layer of protection.

Usual gypsum based plasters cannot cope with the salt contaminants or damaged plaster that is left behind after years of accumulation. This is because they cannot tolerate moisture and consequently allow the transfer of salt and damp through walls.

As a result of this, you can be left with long lasting problems such as condensation problems and decorative spoiling. This can negatively impact your home and make it uncomfortable and unpleasant to live in, which is why damp proof plastering is so important.

Our professional rendering contractors at Prokil use damp proof plaster mix approved by the British Board of Agreement (BBA) to prevent the worst from happening, all of which have been tried and tested to show resistance to salt and moisture.

How Do I Know If I Need Damp Proof Plastering?

There are some common tell-tale signs that your property might be suffering from rising or penetrating damp, which can all be effectively treated with a damp proof render.

Our fully qualified dry lining contractors can attend your property to assess the precise cause and advise on what form of damp proof plastering may be required. If you think you might require our professional plastering services, here are the signs to look out for:

  • Tidal marks
  • Crumbling plasterwork
  • Discolouration of paint/wallpaper
  • Salt staining
