    "Inject brickwork or treat brickwork with a waterproofing agent drylined and possible membrane.

    The drylining method would probably be the best option . Instead of drilling in a victorian house due to the age and dependence of the brickwork"

    "Depending on the type of damp issue you have ie rising damp or penetrative damp,for rising damp a plastic membrane or slate is best but for penetrative you need injection treatment or dry lining"
