    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.
