The Most Effective Way to Stop Rising Damp
Top 10 Advantages of Using FREEZTEQ®
UK Rising Damp Treatment, Solutions & Damp Proofing
Freezteq® Products Ltd has been providing damp proofing products since the early 1970s. The Freezteq® Frozen Damp-course System was actually invented in 1965 and has been used successfully for damp proofing walls for forty years. This system is a rising damp treatment comprising prepacks of siliconate solutions which are frozen before use. Once holes have been drilled into the mortar line of the wall, following the instructions provided, the frozen prepacks (called ice sticks) are inserted directly into the mortar joints, which are the major pathways for any rising damp, thereby providing an effective damp proof course.
A damp proof course may be required if you have signs of damp in your house. The Freezteq damp proof course system is easy to install and can be used by either a contractor or someone with a reasonable knowledge of DIY. Proofing walls against damp is something which you may look upon with trepidation. However, with the unique Freezteq system, proofing walls against damp can be fairly easy. It is an innovative treatment against rising damp which is used worldwide.
If you are considering inserting a damp proof course in your home, you may feel overwhelmed by the various rising damp solutions available. Once you start looking, you will undoubtedly find numerous damp treatment products available to buy. But which one? Purchase of the Freezteq® Frozen Damp-course System would be a very good choice. It is reasonably cheap compared with other rising damp solutions and, as mentioned, is easy to use. It is one of the damp proofing products available which you can insert yourself – simply follow the instructions provided in each box. Fighting damp just couldn't be easier.
There is no specialised equipment required to insert a Freezteq system. The only tools required are a hammer drill and a 22mm drill bit, both of which can be hired, thereby saving the expense of purchasing equipment which you would no longer need once you have completed your rising damp treatment. You will, of course, need to purchase sufficient Freezteq prepacks to complete the job and be able to freeze the packs for 48 hours before use. If you are doing a large amount of walling, however, you can treat the walls in sections, thereby alleviating the need to freeze all the prepacks at once.
Freezteq can be used on all wall thicknesses and all types of walling, including brick, stone and rubble infill. Treatment is usually from one side of the wall only, normally the external side.
Many damp proofing products are readily available; however, some rising damp solutions are not always as effective as they might be. The Freezteq system is one of the rising damp solutions which can be used with confidence. In fact, Freezteq is so confident of its product that it offers a thirty year guarantee!
Treatment for rising damp has been Freezteq's main business since the company's inception, although other building preservation products are also produced.
