Article
When choosing materials for rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms, or any other that may have any contact with water or may be affected by increased humidity, it is strongly recommended to consider damp proofing. Damp proofing protects wet zones of buildings against ingress of moisture. The type of damp proofing is closely associated with the moisture load and room or building designation. The inappropriate selection of materials and method of application in wet zones can cause immense damage such as tiles coming off, paint flaking, crystallising salt or even presence of fungus which can result in costly and difficult repairs. This article explains how to distinguish wet, damp and dry zones in a room, how to choose appropriate products and how to apply them in proper way. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the ‘why' behind damp proofing
- Understand how to distinguish, wet, damp and dry zones in a room
- Understand what layers should be included when applying damp proofing
- Understand how to apply damp proofing
