  3. 3. Damp proofing in construction is a type of moisture control applied to building walls and floors to prevent moisture from passing into the interior spaces. Damp problems are one of the most frequent problems encountered in homes. Hence, treatment to check dampness is considered to be one of the important items of work in the construction of a building. The treatment given to keep the walls, floors and basement dry is termed as damp-proofing. Generally damp proofing keeps moisture out of a building where vapour barriers keep interior moisture from getting into the walls

  5. 5. Defects & sources of Dampness :- DEFECTS:- Various defects caused by dampness in a building are :-  May lead to softening & crumbling of plaster.  Promotes growth of termites etc.,. sources:- Important sources of dampness are:-  Penetration of rain water through unprotected top of walls.  Leakage in water closet, kitchen etc.,.

  7. 7. What is integral damp-proofing?
  8. 8. Over the past two decades, the construction industry has had technological advances in waterproofing materials, including integral waterproofing systems as well as more advanced membrane materials. Integral systems such as hycrete work within the matrix of a concrete structure, giving the concrete itself a waterproof quality. There are two main types of integral waterproofing systems: the hydrophilic and the hydrophobic systems. A hydrophilic system typically uses a crystallisation technology that replaces the water in the concrete with insoluble crystals. Various brands available in the market claim similar properties, but not all can react with a wide range of cement hydration by-products and thus require caution. Hydrophobic systems use fatty acids to block pores within the concrete, preventing water passage.
