If your walls are soaked by the British weather, they could be allowing heat to escape as much as twice as fast as dry walls. You wouldn’t sleep in a wet sleeping bag, would you? This is why building experts have developed a brick treatment that keeps your walls dry, as well as allowing damp to escape as harmless vapour. Imagine making your building more energy efficient, without having to invest in new insulation or costly heating systems.
More than just a damp proof paint
You can now treat your walls with an liquid applied impregnation that turns your building water repellent, meaning rain cannot ruin your properties’ insulation. This keeps the heat where you want it to be. Scientists have also engineered this solution to be breathable, meaning any damp in the walls can escape. This leaves your building’s walls dry, healthy and ready to take on the worst rain the UK has to offer.
More than just a damp proof membrane
As coatings and sealants are usually designed to remain on the surface of a structure, they can fail to provide long term and breathable protection. An impregnation is sprayed or brushed onto the masonry. It then penetrates up to 17mm into the substrate, where it chemically bonds with the material. An impregnation shares its hydrophobic qualities with your property, giving it the protection you need. For HydroBlock, these qualities can even last up to 10 years. You get bright, clean and dry walls, no matter the weather conditions. So when your neighbours’ buildings turn dark and damp in the rain, yours can stay as appealing as the day you apply the solution.
A quick and easy step towards energy efficiency
One of the biggest reasons more and more building owners are using impregnations is how quick and easy they are to apply. They’re the ideal after-clean solution and an easy way to achieve better energy efficiency. Simply wash the walls, wait for them to dry and brush, roll or spray the solution on.
Proven help with heating costs
Energy efficiency masonry treatment
An impregnation can save you money on your heating bills. These treatments have been tested and developed over a number of years, and are proven to lower heating costs by keeping your walls dry. Imagine having a handful of extra cash at the end of every month. Plus dry walls will prevent frost damage and lichen build up, and could save you significant costs in the long run.
