Problems with Damp in Spanish Properties: And How to Resolve Them

Problems with Damp in Spanish Properties: And How to Resolve Them

It often comes as a surprise to people to realise that many properties in Spain suffer with damp problems.

The only way to completely solve the problem is to install a vertical tanking system in the affected areas.  Whilst this solution is disruptive, it is a tried and tested method and if properly installed will ensure that the damp is eliminated.

No more flaking, mouldy or damp-smelling areas.

At Handycall we guarantee this work for a minimum of ten years, but in practice, it lasts much longer than that.
