What is a Damp-Proof Course (DPC)?

A damp-proof course is what prevents water from rising up the walls and from there causing further damage.

When this damp-proof course breaks down overtime and combined with the mortar eroding and breaking down, moisture is able to penetrate up the walls.

The remedy for this is to cut out the lowest course of bricks and replace the deteriorated damp-course membrane with a new one before replacing the bricks.
