So what is penetrating damp? Christchurch residents should know that this form of rising damp comes from rain or snow that permeates the wall ceiling. The exposure to rain or any outside water causes this damp, unlike traumatic damp that infiltrates the walls from an inside source.
If you have noticed damp patches around your windows, then you may have a break in the seal or your windowsill is faulty. If there are long vertical stains, that could be because there are problems with the pipes of your gutter. If you are unsure if you have Christchurch penetrating damp, then our professionals will be able to help.
Penetrating damp in Christchurch tends to be a common problem in older houses as many of them don’t have cavity walls. In addition, penetrating damp is likely to be found in properties that have exposure to the North and West facing walls.
