When a wall has the Damp problem, can it be treated if we apply paint to it? Wondering for low price method other than the damp proofing course. Can you suggest me applying only paint to it? :help:

Post a couple of photos of the wall with the problem, and explain if it is an outside wall, ground floor, top floor. What is the construction/age of the property.

You can go for a damp-proof membrane if not DPC to prevent moisture transmission or you can use fiber reinforced elastomeric liquid applied water proofing membrane. It has elastomeric and resilient acrylic polymers and reinforcing polyester fibers. Upon curing, it forms a thick, seamless, durable membrane thus offering ultimate waterproofing.
