  • 1. Damp Proofing vs Water Proofing Structural Waterproofing, Tanking, Damp Proofing & Pumping Solutions
  • 2. While constructing or renovating a house, people usually have the doubt as to which is the better solution – damp proofing or waterproofing. Also, why one solution is better than the other. It cannot be concluded decisively as to one is better than the other. Instead, by finding the differences between both either of them can be chosen based on your need and the structure of your building. It is wise to understand the differences between damp proofing and water proofing, in order to decide which is more cost effective and appropriate for your home.

  • 3. Damp Proofing Damp proofing method can be applied for a property when the external ground level is lower than the floor level inside the building. When the earth around is lower, the risk of pressurized water ingress is reduced, and here you can apply damp proofing. For example, when dampness is found you could apply a damp proofing membrane that can manage the capillary held moisture applicable in the case of walls and floors.

  • 4. Waterproofing Waterproofing is crucial if the external grounds are on a higher plane than the internal floors. This is because there are more chances of water entering the property through the earth, and hence you need a waterproofing solution that can collect and remove the water away from the building. Water proofing is done with a concoction that includes rubber, preventing moisture and water from penetrating any material.

  • 5. Summary Damp Proofing Water Proofing Is tar based Is rubber based. Slows the process of water absorption. Prevents the process of water absorption. Is initially more expensive. Is cheaper in the beginning, but leads to more expensive problems later on. Cracks along with the foundation Water proofing stretches to cover those cracks Does not resist water well enough to prevent Prevents ground water from rain oversaturation from ground water Structural Waterproofing, Tanking, Damp Proofing & Pumping Solutions
