Damp Proofing Question

Remedial damp course installation and subsequent replastering

I am considering installing a remedial damp course as have been advised the current isn't fit for purpose. I don't have any current internal damp issues however. If I do fit a remedial one using of of the cream injection methods will I still need to replastering and if so why?

If you do not have any internal dampness in your property you will not need remedial damp proof course.

Hello, If you have No damp readings that is a good sign , If the existing plasterwork is unaffected by salts or has not become loose in any way then you do not need to re-plaster. A capillary action cream should be used as this will also work with any residual minor damp issue.
Also the cream injection method is not a remedial it is now the most used DPC type , there are varying products available so the price varies .

Hope that helps - dampuk.net
