What is DampProofing?

Dampproofing is a method of preventing moisture from passing through the walls of buildings. This treatment can be applied when foundations are built which enables water to run off the surface instead of being absorbed. It also helps prevent damp proofing walls from becoming saturated during heavy rainfall or hosepipe bans and can help prevent damp in the home.


Dampproofing is the process of treating external walls to prevent damp from entering or affecting the internal structure.

The term “damp” means the presence of moisture in sufficient quantities to provide harmful conditions for building occupants. Getting your property damp proofed will ensure that it stands up to whatever Mother Nature throws at it and stays looking as good as new for years to come.

Methods of DampProofing

There are many methods of damp proofing a house, but it is always best to find out what is most suitable for your home and property because there are different types.

  • Waterproof plaster, lime plasters and cement sheets fall under hydrophobic treatment. This type of treatment works by waterproofing your walls to prevent liquid from penetrating or developing as hydrostatic pressure and occurs when water is forced through tiny holes or cracks in the walls. When water seeps into these holes, it forms a film, accumulating over time and growing bigger in size until it causes dampness in certain areas.
  • Damp proofing involves eliminating the source of the damp and preventing its return. Our specialist will apply a chemical absorption treatment to the walls and floors of your property. This treatment goes beyond conventional treatments. It doesn’t simply attempt to kill the mould – it destroys it at a molecular level so that it cannot grow back.

Damp Proofing delivers a range of proven methods to keep your structure dry, and in excellent condition. These methods can be used individually or combined to form an integrated strategy.

What is the Difference between Dampproofing and Waterproofing?

There are several differences between dampproofing and waterproofing, specifically in the methods and materials used.

While many people believe these methods to be the same, they actually differ slightly in scope and results. Basically, the main difference is that waterproofing keeps water out entirely, and dampproofing keeps moisture from entering through the walls.

Waterproofing is a blanket term used to describe a variety of solutions, but in most cases, it is applied as a coating. Dampproofing, on the other hand, penetrates into the building itself to ensure that no water gets in.

Differences between Dampproofing and Waterproofing


  • Waterproofing prevents water from reaching a surface or passing through a material by stopping moisture at the source and waterproof materials act as barriers.
  • A waterproof coating is applied to the drywall, or another weak surface area, wall, roof deck, or roofing membrane that prevents Water Damage


Dampproofing is a water-repellent coating that stops damp from physically penetrating into a building. It can be used on nearly all building surfaces and materials, and it gives an attractive shiny finish

Dampproofing does not provide a structural waterproofing system for new buildings, nor does it cover structural inadequacies.

Bituminous Dampproofing

Bituminous Dampproofing is what’s commonly called “waterproofing” for the roof of a home, sometimes also used for the floor (basement). It’s a black substance that’s spread on the roof and basement roof to protect it from water. A lot of people have a problem with the smell, but that depends on the materials were mixed with.

Bituminous Dampproofing

The process involves waterproofing interior surfaces with a water-resistant coating. This waterproof coating is placed on the inside of your roof and prevents leaks from occurring due to melting snow, minor holes, and other damages from storms.

Pros of Bituminous Dampproofing

Its key advantage is that it can be applied over existing surfaces, without removal of the existing roof membrane or the need for structural repair inside the attic.

The dampproofing can last for up to three months before it wears off, helping extend the lifespan of a home. By installing bitumen dampproofing around your home and building, you can save on energy costs by keeping a more consistent temperature in your house.

Cons of Bituminous Dampproofing

Due to the inclusion of fillers within the bitumen, this type of dampproofing is often significantly lighter in colour than other waterproofing options, resulting in overall black colour. It typically performs better under load than its other types, however, it tends to be more expensive and also less versatile than other options.

Cementitious Dampproofing

Cementitious Dampproofing is a silicate waterproofing solution to protect the base of your home from water damage caused by rain and moisture. Our high-quality, non-sagging formula seals the gap between the top of your basement wall and floor and the cement floor, keeping water out for up to three decades. This water-resistant product stops cracked patio floors before they happen, saves money and time on expensive basement waterproofing projects, and extends the life of your home with professional protection.

Cementitious Dampproofing

This process is a blend of cement and special agents which acts as a water-repellent and damp proof barrier. This allows the Cementitious Dampproofing to seal various structural elements such as walls, structural pieces, floors and even ceilings of buildings against water penetrating through the concrete, enabling it to continue with its function without any fear of water leaking through.
