1 A quick reference guide to Effective Waterproofing

2 Identifying Damp The term damp strikes fear into the hearts of most homeowners. Left untreated, a small, easily repairable problem can become much larger and considerably more expensive to repair. The presence of damp is usually signalled by obvious visual clues such as discolouration of surfaces, mould, bubbling or peeling paint or crystallising salts on the plaster. Excelsior Paints have developed a range of waterproofing products that are easily applied by the homeowner, to effectively deal with the most common damp problems namely; Penetrating Damp and Rising Damp. Identifying the Problem Penetrating Damp Poor guttering, downpipes, badly sealed roofs and windows can all leave homes vulnerable to penetrating damp. However, the most common cause of problems is damaged and poorly maintained exterior walls. What we forget is that bricks, the most common of all building materials, are porous. Like a hard sponge, they contain thousands of pores, all of which are able to absorb water. An average brick can hold up to a half a litre of water. Penetrating damp is drawn through walls by an hydrophilic action that can eventually reach the inside the house, creating internal damp and showing its presence through cracked and blown plaster, unsightly paint and even wet rot and dry rot. Penetrating damp can cause moss, algae, and mould which all look unsightly on the exterior of a property. Rising Damp Rising damp is caused by water rising vertically from the ground up through a permeable wall structure. The water rises through tiny pores in the masonry surface by a process known as capillary action. Effectively, the masonry draws moisture up like a wick. The Solution The Excelsior range of waterproofing solutions is trusted by contractors, builders and homeowners alike. Easy to apply it ensures an effective waterproofing solution for every surface. Advice regarding surface preparation and application are clearly printed on each product pack. However, should you require additional information contact Mylaw Technical Services.
