What Is Penetrating Damp?
Penetrating damp is when water ingress penetrates into the property through an external wall, for example from a leaking gutter or defective pointing.
How Can I Tell If My House Has Penetrating Damp?
Common signs of penetrating damp are;
- Discoloured patches on your walls or ceiling
- Peeling paint or wallpaper
- Bubbling or crumbling plaster
- Black mould.
