What Causes Penetrating Damp?

Penetrating damp tends to happen in walls, windows, roofs or door surrounds. It usually occurs by water gaining entry to your property due to issues with its foundations. This damp can become prevalent on any floor of a building but it is often most obvious higher up on walls.

Penetrating damp’s main causes:

    • Property issues – gutters overflowing, damaged pointing, poorly installed windows, etc
    • Porous walls –bricks ability to stop rain penetrating them decreases with time
    • Damaged brickwork can cause rain to gain access to your property
    • Masonry suffering from frost damage
    • The damage to the exterior of property – e.g. damage to the roof

Penetrating damp problems often present themselves at guttering height. Identifying your damp problem at this height tends to mean that the problem is within your downpipes or gutters. Utilising experts is the only way that you can accurately diagnose the source of your problem. Selecting the most effective solution is only possible through accurately identifying the source of the problem.

How To Identify Penetrating Damp

We will send out specialists from our Stirling branch to immediately get to the source of your damp problem. The quickest and most cost-efficient solution for your home will then be provided.

What our specialist will do:

    • Inspect the property thoroughly to correctly identify the damp problem you are suffering from
    • Find the source of your damp problem (Point of access for the water)
    • Provide you with an easily understandable survey report for you to fully comprehend the extent of your problem.
    • Provide you with the best treatment solution

We will initially repair the damage which caused the damp in the first place. Our specialists will then apply a physical membrane or chemical water repellent.

Without the relevant experience, it is unrealistic for someone to be capable of accurately diagnosing what type of damp problem it is they are suffering from. Seeking assistance from the property specialists must be the first step taken after suspecting you have a damp issue. No home is safe from penetrating damp regardless of how long ago it was built. It is very easy for self-treatments to be unsuccessful as misdiagnosing the type of damp affecting your property can be very easily done.
