Rising Damp Treatments

Rising damp and salt contamination can seriously impair the structural integrity and strength of heritage buildings over time. The obvious signs can include water stains, cracking or crumbling masonry, and salt marks on finishings.

McMillan Heritage Plastering is a certified applicator of both the Westox chemical injection damp proof course and the cocoon desalination system. These systems are essential for the effective treatment of salt contamination and rising damp and have been successfully used around the world for decades.

With respect for the original craftsmanship of heritage buildings, along with an extensive knowledge of the uses of building limes, McMillan Heritage Plastering is perfectly positioned to carry out the best practices in rising damp treatments followed by quality traditional solid plaster repairs (internal/external).

In synchronisation with McMillan Heritage Plastering’s conservative approach to heritage work, all rising damp and salt contamination treatments are performed with the utmost care to ensure the original character and integrity of the building is maintained.
