My wife and I had considered a cellar conversion for a long time, with other commitments we always thought it would be too much hassle. However, Dry Pro UK made the job appear straight forward and we now have the extra room we always wanted! We wanted no hassle and that’s what we got.
Tests have shown that a damp content of 5% in a plain brick wall, for example, can lower the insulation performance by up to 50%, especially where cavity wall insulation has been installed. Porous building materials, such as natural stone and brick normally have good insulating properties as they have air filled cavities, which offer low thermal conductivity, but only when they are dry.
By having defected cavity wall insulation removed it will prevent thermal bridging to the interior of your property but will also leave your exterior walls with 0% insulation.
By applying Properla superhydrophobic masonry creme to the exterior walls you will increase thermal resistance, reduce frost damage and prevent the growth of microbial spores.
Properla will reduce heat loss by 30% and comes with a 20 year manufactures performance guaranty.
Super Hydrophobic Wall Barrier key features:
Water cannot stick to the coated surface but forms droplets that run off the surface.
Reduces water absorption by more than 95%. Dry walls mean less heat loss.
Masonry remains clean and attractive as dirt is unable to take hold.
Water and moisture are able to escape the masonry due to the high breathability rating of the products.
Tested and certified according to EN ISO 15148:2002 : demonstrating the hygrothermal performance of all the products.
All products are weather resistant in accordance with VOB – meaning the products can withstand all climatic conditions.
Manufactured in accordance with DIN 4108 – thermal insulation in buildings.
Tested and certified in accordance with EN 15824 :2009, confirming the products performance with regard to water absorption, water vapour permeability, tensile strength, thermal conductivity and long term durability.
