Redoing Damp Proofing


Postby sacking3 » Tue Apr 19, 2011 7:30 pm

I had my house damp proofed about 24 years ago. There is some damp in the kitchen. Is it safe to get it redone or will this break the brick ? The drilled holes from before were quite big. It's a solid brick build about 100 years old.

thanks sacking3

sacking3,
If you are concerned about the integrity of twice drilled bricks then go up or down one course (depending on the level of the first injected DPC).
