Generally, damp proofing keeps moisture out of a building where vapor barriers keep interior moisture from getting into walls. Moisture resistance is not necessarily absolute; it is usually defined by a specific test method, limits, and engineering tolerances. Damp proofing is accomplished several ways including: A damp-proof course (DPC) is a barrier through the structure designed to...
