If you think your home is being affected by water penetration or condensation problems, it’s important to call a damp proofing specialist. Damp problems — which typically include mould, woodworm and dry or wet rot — can cause significant damage to your property, can result in health problems for those who live there, and can even lead to a significant decline in the value of your home.
While damp problems and condensation issues can occur in any property, they are particularly common in older builds and period homes, as these types of buildings may have been constructed without a damp proof membrane (also known as ‘tanking’).
