Is This Condensation or Rising Damp?

📪 Ask Skill Builder:

Roger tries to figure out another damp issue, or does he?

Here’s our message from Jordan:

We moved into this property about 5 weeks ago and have noticed that after the bad spell of rain, the wall has a big wet patch with mould appearing.

We had a survey done before we moved in (the dampness wasn’t present then), highlighting the damp but putting it down to condensation damp.

Since moving in, we have had 4 damp specialists around who have since quoted us for different bits of work but have all said it’s down to different things.

This is our first house, and we don’t know what to get carried out as some of the treatments were costly. Can you help identify what it actually is? Rising damp or condensation damp etc.
