Rising damp Caused by Briging From a Concrete Floor

Postby gaw5h » Sat Sep 30, 2017 7:44 pm

Hi everyone.

I've just completed a repair on a 1930's house that has suffered from rising damp for many years.
Basically, the original suspended timber floor was replaced at some point in time with a solid concrete floor, but the job was done badly and without consideration toward the original DPC. Leaving a bridging issue to cause rising damp.
So, having put in all the hard work I thought I might share a video that I put together that explains the issue and how I went about repairing it.
I've published it on Youtube and it can be found here- [youtube][/youtube]
I hope it's clear enough & helps someone along the way. Cheers.
