    Why Penetrating Damp is a Problem

    Penetrating damp is known technically as ‘water ingress’; it refers to any moisture seeping into the fabric of a building from routes other than the ground (see Rising Damp).

    Potential Damp Issues

    Penetrating damp can cause structural and cosmetic damage to a building, as well as potentially creating health complications for the inhabitants if left untreated for a prolonged time.

    Common problems as a result of penetrating damp include Dry Rot and Wet Rot. Solving this issue quickly by getting to the route of the problem as early as possible and treating accordingly is vital to safeguarding your property.
