Problems associated with penetrating damp

If left to its own devices penetrating damp can cause a multitude of problems even if the water doesn’t seep all the way inside a property. Typically older buildings are affected by penetrating damp but new build properties can be too if they have: defective pointing, porous brickwork, cracks in the render or defective gutters.

Typical problems with penetrating damp include:

  • Wet rot
  • Dry rot
  • Black mould growth
  • Moss growth
  • Damp plasterwork
  • Increased heat loss
  • Damp musty smells
  • Frost damage to masonry
  • Unsightly water damage
  • Damp wall insulation.
