Why Is The Wall Damp & How Did He Fix It?

Special thanks go to Sam & Jen from SJ Ward Builders.

Wicking, also known as capillary action, occurs when moisture is drawn up a wall from the ground, typically due to a lack of or a faulty damp-proof course. It can cause severe structural damage and mould growth if left untreated.

Other underlying issues that may cause wicking include poor drainage or a high water table. It’s essential to maintain proper drainage around the foundation, regularly check for cracks or defects in the walls and ensure that any renovations or additions to the building are made with proper damp-proofing measures in place.
