Damp doesn’t just appear; if you spot a wet patch for the first time, then this is a clear indication that something has changed in and around the property. The last thing it will be is rising damp. There could be several reasons, so a correct diagnosis is critical. Condensation, penetrating damp, maintenance issues, cold bridging and exceptional weather conditions could all be responsible. At times remedial costs could be covered by your insurance policy under the appropriate peril clause, so the correct understanding of what is occurring within the property is necessary for a successful claim.
