Penetrative damp is a common type of dampness seen in buildings of all types. We treat penetrative damp mainly by applying a colourless, breathable water-repellent on to the walls.
Rain penetration can occur in buildings of all ages. Penetration may appear through the roof, walls or window reveals. Usually, water will penetrate through the outer structure of the building and gradually emerge indoors. Common causes of penetrative damp include:
Rain penetration through walls is mainly seen in buildings with single skin walls. But it may also occur in buildings with cavity walls. The major reason for rain penetration through the walls is defects in masonry such as porous bricks, stones, or mortar. Defects such as incorrect pointing, cracks or unfilled joints. Defects in rendering is also a cause for penetrative damp.Call our experienced team for the most suited penetrating damp solution for you.
