Defeat Damp with our DIY DPC Kit

Right on cue after a sweltering heatwave, the heavens opened and now it seems to have been raining for days! If any of this excess water finds its way from the ground into the brick walls of YOUR property, then you're going to be looking at costly, time-consuming repairs that are certainly going to put a damper on the rest of your summer holiday. This means that it's the perfect time to install a damp proof course (DPC) and Twistfix are right here by your side with the perfect product to do it with.

That product is one of our continual bestselling items here at Twistfix, testament to its superior efficiency, simplicity of installation and consistently competitive Twistfix price. The DIY Damp Proofing Cream Kit contains everything needed to create a professional, lasting damp proof course to stop rising damp in walls.

The comprehensive kit centres on eight 380ml cartridges of professional DPC which in itself offers a reliable rising damp treatment for brick and masonry walls. Formulated using a process of emulsi­fica­tion and therefore without the need for added thickening agents, the DPC included in our kit is sufficient to create a new chemical damp proof course that will protect up to 30m of single leaf wall or 15m of cavity wall.

The DPC is injected into pre-drilled holes along the bed joint selected for the DPC, where it immediately begins to migrate deeply into the pores of damp masonry walls, stopping rising damp in its tracks. All that's left to do is make good with sand and cement, which you can get on with right away.

As well as the crucial damp proofing cream, the kit also contains two SDS carbide drill bits of appropriate size, an extension tube and a heavy-duty caulking gun so you can get to work as soon as you've unboxed. We've even thrown in a pair of protective gloves to make sure you work safely.

Check out all the technical details of what's included in our bestselling DIY Damp Proofing Cream Kit on the product page and have a happy, dry summer!
