Our surveyor diagnosed penetrating damp due to the poor pointing and weathered masonry.
The building is only 20 years old but is north facing and open to the elements.
The most common visual symptom of rain penetration is damp patches on internal walls. The damp usual causes any paint to flake or wall paper to peel. However, damp masonry can also result in a wide range of other symptoms including moss and mould growth and rotting of embedded timbers.
