Condensation in Newcastle Upon Tyne

Condensation is the most common form of all the damp issues and is caused from day to day activities being carried out by any homeowner. Condensation is the form of built up warm moisture inside of the property then the air will cool down and will come into contact with a cold surface.

This form of damp is a seasonal problem and is largely present during the months of October to April where ventilation is at its lowest. Doors and windows tend to remain closed during these months which means the moisture-laden air can’t escape the property therefore causing condensation.

Rising Damp in Newcastle Upon Tyne

Rising damp is the procedure of moisture rising up from the ground up the building. Rising damp can occur when your property has no damp proofing in place such as a damp proof course.

This is more of a problem in older housing where there was damp protection put in place unlike modern houses now where damp proofing always put in place. There are other forms of damp treatment that can put in place to stop against rising damp such as Electro Osmosis and The DryTek Damp Proofing System.

Penetrating Damp in Newcastle Upon Tyne

Penetrating damp is the process of the water penetrating from the outside into the inside of the property. The cause of penetrating damp is poor maintenance of the building such as damaged guttering. Older properties are more at risk than newer properties due to the fact that cavity wall ties are installed in modern properties.

The amount of damage caused by penetrating damp can vary dependent on the amount of moisture that has penetrated through the building. Penetrating damp can lead to further damage of wood rot which can cause severe damage to your property.
