Rising Damp Solution

Whenever Rising Damp is diagnosed it is important to have the condition correctly treated, as failure to do so can cause damage and devaluation to the property.
It is not sufficient to simply cover up the problem with a special paint or coating in the hope that the problem will go away. Only by preventing the dampness rising up the wall in the first place can rising dampness be adequately controlled.
The most widely employed method of rising damp treatment in the past was to inject water-repellent fluids into the wall under pressure. Although this method has proven to be effective, it is known to have a number of disadvantages; for example, it introduces large amounts of liquid carrier into the wall, prolonging the drying out period. The process is also very slow and operator dependent.
The Dryzone System is fast, clean and effective
Dryzone damp-proofing cream was introduced into the Irish market in 2000 and caused a revolution in the treatment of rising damp.
The Dryzone cream is introduced by means of a simple applicator gun into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course. Once the Dryzone is installed, it diffuses to where it is most needed before curing to form a water-repellent barrier against rising damp.

Dryzone’s advantages over conventional chemical injection systems include:

  • Quick and easy to install
  • Concentrated formulation (over 60% active ingredient)
  • Low hazard
  • Spillage and mess virtually eliminated
  • Consistent application rate
  • Does not require specialist electrical equipment
  • Approved by several independent tests
  • BBA approved

All methods of damp treatment cause disruption to the occupants of the affected building. It is therefore important to choose a treatment that will work first time around and avoid the need for re-treatment.

Dryzone has been formulated to provide an effective barrier to rising damp even in hard to treat situations such as walls constructed using lime mortar, rubble-filled walls, and highly saturated walls.

The effectiveness of Dryzone has been tested under more conditions than any other rising damp treatment on the market – providing assurance that it will work in walls of all types.
