Damp proofing refers to the treatments and methods applied to protect your house from dampness. Moisture and water can get absorbed through your floors or walls into the internal parts of your home. Any house that does not have a damp proof course is prone to dampness problems, and it is therefore critical that you ensure that you have installed a damp proof course when constructing your home to avoid future damages. It is important to hire a professional company for the damp proofing of your home. Richardson & Starling are a Scottish based company that expertly deals with damp proofing your home.
