The Schrijver damp proofing system

Schrijver damp proofing - avoid like the plague

This system is yet another of the completely useless damp proofing cons which defaces your building.  These horrible people will come and drill holes in the wall, and cement silly bricks into it which they claim will let damp evaporate.

Amazing that they always target homes which are cement rendered, and usually occupied by old people who are easily conned. Often they are in little chocolate box thatched cottages.  This is the same thing as the Holland Damp Proofing system which collapsed after defrauding thousands of people.  

Don't even consider one of these stupid systems.  If you have a 'damp' problem - the issue is likely to be the very cement render they drill through.  If all they did was to take the render off instead of inserting silly bricks, the house would dry out.  A lot cheaper, and better for the house!
