Penetrating Damp

Stormdry Masonry Protection

With the present weather conditions its no surprise that older homes are being effected by Penetrating Damp were rainwater enters the property through solid walls with no cavity. Now whilst the first port of call should be to check for defective rainwater goods (gutters and downpipes) and to maintain mortar there is still always the posibilty of ingress particularly around windows and doors.

Rainwater goods & penetrating damp.

Probably half of all the calls we get that relate to penetrating damp (rainwater entering the building directly through the walls at any floor) have been impacted in some way by faulty or incorrectly fitted rainwater goods. Overspill from gutters and downpipes can saturate a wall and ingress the building particularly when the walls are of a solid construction.
