Penetrating Damp solutions

Welcome to Dry Guard Damp Proofing’s dedicated page for penetrating damp solutions. Penetrating damp, also known as lateral damp, can afflict properties in the North East, causing considerable damage and creating an unhealthy living environment. Caused by moisture permeating your property’s external walls, penetrating damp can be quite deceptive as its symptoms often mimic those of other types of dampness. This form of damp can occur at any height within your property, unlike rising damp which is confined to the lower levels of a structure. At Dry Guard Damp Proofing, our team of damp specialists is well-equipped to accurately diagnose and efficiently treat penetrating damp, utilising our comprehensive range of industry-leading solutions. With our robust services, we aim to safeguard your home against the detrimental effects of penetrating damp, restoring your peace of mind.
