The Types of Damp
Rising damp is when water from the ground rises through the capillaries of brickwork, stonework or mortar. This results in dampness to the internal wall finishes which can be unsightly, unhealthy, and lead to hygroscopic damp problems.
Rising damp is most common in houses built pre-1925 when damp proof courses were not commonly installed. Penetrating damp is the result of water penetrating horizontally from the exterior through the fabric of a wall. It can occur in any building and, as well as lowering the thermal performance of the wall, it can cause serious problems such as frost damage, even if it doesn’t penetrate all the way through. All forms of damp can cause problems to internal wall finishes and contribute to a damp, unhealthy environment. A permanent solution, which combines the correct products to combat the source of the problem, is therefore essential.
