Dampcoursing installed its physically inserted damp-proof course (DPC) system at a block of three-storey housing association flats that had been experiencing an ingress of water at roof level. Its solution included cutting out the horizontal brick joint immediately above a dressed asphalt waterproofing layer which was installed on the balcony floor, and installing a new DPC, using code four lead flashing.

This was the only sure method of providing a new DPC for these units.
