Damp Proof Course? Syphonic Tubes

Posted by: on 06/06/2021

Advice

The type of damp proof course shown in the video is a common sight when I am visiting properties to carry out damp related surveys. They are sold on the basis that they are non-disruptive to the internal building fabric, they are environmentally friendly and all remedial work is carried out externally. It all sounds very good but the major drawback is that they have never been proven to be effective when dealing with rising damp. I would recommend that they are best avoided at all costs.
