Damp proofing is a crucial construction activity that determines the life and safety of the structure. While selecting any construction material including DPC, an architect or an interior designer should look for some key qualities and then get deeper into
Damp proof course (DPC) is an age-old solution for damp proofing from moisture from the ground. In simplified terms, DPC creates a physical barrier between soil and wall that prevents moisture seepage in the wall due to capillary action.
Waterproofing and damp proofing are both closely related methods of protection of structure against moisture, mold formation and seepage of water. Yet are different in many ways including their purpose, methods, materials used and protection provided.
