If you walk into a room and can spot any of the following issues, chances are you have what is known as penetrating damp.
Left untreated, penetrating damp can cause significant deterioration to your property's infrastructure, damaging walls, floors, and ceilings and eventually seeping into the timbers causing dry rot.
You are more likely to suffer from penetrating damp if your property has a basement vulnerable to sitting groundwater. This is because the groundwater will penetrate the porous building materials, seeping further into the fabric of the building as its structure becomes more and more waterlogged.
Inviting a Garratt's surveyor to check your basement for damp could save your property from future damage and excessively costly remedial work.
The surveyor will check the property's weak and vulnerable areas where water ingress is prevalent and prepare a full report and costings to eradicate the problem. Garratt's Damp and Timber don't just do a quick fix for any penetrating damp issues – to resolve the problem permanently, Garratt's will recommend a solution that eliminates all future penetrating damp risks.
