A guide to Damp and Condensation
The difference between damp and condensation
Damp occurs when a fault in the building's basic structure lets in water from outside.
There are two types of damp, penetrating damp and rising damp.
Penetrating damp occurs when water is coming in through the walls or roof, (for example, under a loose roof tile, leaking pipes or waste overflow) or through cracks.
If your home suffers from any of these damp problems, please contact the housing repairs team.
