It’s damp season! Roger is back to look at Skill Builder viewer Helen’s damp problem.

Here’s Helen’s message:

Hi Roger

We moved into our new home in August this year. We have a damp problem as the original guttering was dumping water at the north corner of the house.

We’ve re-routed the guttering and have managed to get rainfall 1.5m from the house.

After letting the corner dry out and removing soil a brick’s depth from slate DPC, what can we do to help keep brickwork and foundations dry?

Any recommendations and suggestions are gratefully accepted.

Thank you 👍
