How To Find & Fix Your Damp Problems

It goes without saying, if you've got damp, it won't look great and it'll probably smell. We'll show you the different types of damp and some tips on how you treat them.

What is Condensation?

Condensation is caused by warm air on a cold surface. It can lead to damp on your walls and ceilings. 

What is Penetrating Damp?

Penetrating damp patches will appear across your wall and may get darker when it rains. It can happen because of leaky guttering. Water can find its way into your home, but don't worry, you can stop it by fixing the problem.
