How does a Damp Proof Courses protect your property from Rising Damp?

Put very simply, a damp proofing solution will provide a barrier between rising water and the structure of your premises. When water exists above the normal levels below your home or property, and particularly in areas where the soil or ground is given to poor drainage, then water will try and find a way to permeate the nearest conductor it comes into contact with. Via Capillarity, the water will rise through porous materials (such as brickwork) until it can travel no further and reaches saturation point. Without proper damp proofing throughout your property you may effectively be inviting rising damp to enter your home.
