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]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyY2CRfLFgE[/youtube] I hope it's clear enough & helps someone along the way. Cheers.
