6 tips to help you tackle damp problems in your home

    1

    Damp plaster is unpleasant to live with, especially at this time of year, and can affect the whole room, but what can you do about it?

    Here are six tips for dealing with the problem:

    1. Check the outside of your home. Penetrating damp happens when there’s a problem with the fabric of the building. While the damp usually moves horizontally from the outside in, it can appear on ceilings (see below) as well as walls.

    Defective or missing flashing on the roof, defective or blocked guttering, defective pointing and brickwork, and cracked or missing render typically cause penetrating damp, although there may be other causes. Sometimes what appears to be damp may actually be condensation.

    My experience buying a home was an absolute joy! I had heard about other companies and the horror some of our friends experienced. Collin Rogers, our agent, was entirely dedicated to finding us what we were looking for in a new home. He offered advice when we really needed it, was a great listener, and above all, he was always available! We even closed a week early. We are “sold” on Collin & KW!
