What is damp proof coursing? In short, damp coursing (damp proofing) is a generic term to describe the variety of damp proofing treatment and solutions applied to prevent damp problems affecting your property. However, damp proofing is more commonly known as a type of waterproofing for constructed walls where a damp proofing barrier (commonly known as a damp proof course or DPC) is placed in walls or floors.
Damp proof coursing works as a long term prevention to moisture decay. When it comes to walls and foundations, damp proofing prevents moisture and water passing through into interior spaces and can therefore prevent timber decay and structural damage such as dry rot, wet rot and rising damp.
When a building is constructed, preventative damp proof coursing is generally installed into the base of the walls in the form of a plastic membrane or slate barrier. This is to prevent damp rising through the fabric wall. If it is the case, however, that you are noticing damp climbing up the walls or damp issues appearing within a property, it is always better to err on the side of caution and have a professional damp specialist take a look at it.
