Penetrating Damp

Unlike Rising Damp, Penetrating Damp is generated by water seaping through walls and is generally caused by structural issues such as leaking pipes, damaged guttering or roofing problems. In the case of Penetrating Damp the water moves around a building horizontally rather than vertically as in Rising Damp

The tell-tale signs of Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp often shows up through damp patches on walls, ceilings or floors, which may darken when it rains. You’re more likely to get penetrating damp if you live in an older building with solid walls, as cavity walls provide some protection.

It is important in the first instance to verify what the actual problem is as there are many different forms of water ingress such as rising damp, condensation, dry rot and wet rot.
