Curing Damp Problems in Spain
Two building problems we think we´ll leave behind when moving to Spain are damp and condensation. But many properties here suffer from damp problems for a variety of reasons, for instance.:
- Badly built properties
- Lack of insulation
- Insufficient ventilation
- Lack of maintenance
- Bad drainage
- Poor quality materials used in key areas
- Poorly thought out additions to the original building
Different types of damp
Rising damp and condensation are the main types of damp found in Spain. These can be easily identified and often easily eradicated with the addition of air bricks or special renders.
Leaking terraces and roofs are also a common cause of damp. Owners generally only become aware of the issue following heavy rain.
