Does your House have SALITRE ?

Post by engineer.mike on Wed Oct 30, 2013 6:54 pm

Whats SALITRE ?
Most of the Mexican houses are plagued with problems of Salitre / Humedad or whats commonly known in the UK as Rising Damp
This is because the houses are constructed without an adequate DPC (damp proof course) which consists simply of a layer of 4"
tape layed in the brick work course at floor level to prevent humidity by capillary action rising up through the inside walls of your house
Basically the walls are sucking water up from the sub-soil into your beautiful home !
The Mexicans dont have a solution for Salitre ,you can find several products in Home Depot-impermeablizantes paints,selladors,special cements by Sika,Fester and Comex but sealing in the dampness doesnt work !...the salts always destroy the cement surface along with the sealant
Dont trust the local Albaniles because theyre all idiots and will lie through their teeth with a non existent guarantee to fix your Salitre
The only recognised way to remedy Rising Damp is to inject a new DPC by drilling into the wall every 4" and injecting a special breathable silicon suchas Dryzone .Drilling a DPC is more work than painting the wall with a ridiculous Mex sealant but youll be FREE from the dreaded Salitre FOREVER ! The Installation can be DIY or by a labourer and the cost of Dryzone is as cheap as what youd spend on the defective sealants ! Contact Mike in Guadalajara email- dryzonemexico@aol.com

In answer to the deleted post.............
Little brother....I told you that CBob won't allow any family feuds on this board...especially of our ilk.
Now what about salitre...I'm still chipping away with a hammer and chisel.

I apologise again for saying that ALL Albaniles are idiots and liars but they ALL know that their sealant treatments wont work and the humidity will return the following rainy season ....its part of the Mex Culture to fix the salitre every year or two and the Albaniles have their regular Clientes
The problem is when the Albaniles give the impression that their sealant will be a permanent solution !
"Viajero" could you contribute something positive to the Forum without embarassing yourself !...this is a serious subject ,the Mexicans wont buy houses contaminated with SALITRE because they say you can never be rid of it ! ]

I would be far more concerned about whether or not my home was built on caliche or a fault line. Then again, a "voodoo liquid solution" cannot be applied to correct such.

This is an old post but...
I have some salitre in and outside my house. I usually fix it myself but I'm getting old and thought I should get a "professional". Does anyone know of someone who does a good job? My regular fixer uppers are, too busy, sick, or taking it easy now. I've heard that there are some new improved products to at least hide the problem for several years.
