 Showing pathways of lateral penetrating damp


A: Lateral Penetrating Damp.

Which occurs when the external ground level is above the internal level, raised driveways, patios, flower beds etc. Or where retaining walls are below ground level. Such as basements and cellars.

B: Vertical Penetrating Damp.

Caused by building defects such as a leaky roof, guttering or down pipes. An unused chimney being uncapped. Gaps around the frames; and the rotting timbers of, doors and windows, damaged pointing or faulty flashing.

                  How to identify penetrating damp
  Symptoms that can help you identify penetrating damp include:
  • Watermarks that may appear on the masonry and grow if the water continues to enter
  • Damaged plaster
  • Random damp patched on walls that do not dry out
  • Black mould growth
  • Musty smells
  • Damaged timber as a result of the wood being saturated by damp that possibly may cause wet rot

The above is only a guide to help identify penetrating damp.  To confirm the presence of penetrating damp, we would always recommend a property survey to ensure the correct identification of the issue

Penetrating damp (or moisture ingress horizontally through the the wall fabric) is an issue that can affect all buildings.
