Is rain the cause of the all damp?
The South East remains comparatively dry in comparison to the rest of the country. Regardless of this, rain shouldn’t be problematic unless an underlying complication already exists in your property.
Take Wales for example, it rains to some degree on an almost daily daily basis especially in North Wales. The landscape there is far more extreme in regard to undulating mountainous peeks with water logged valleys below. However in many cases different building methods and practices coupled with the copious use of slate have resulted in properties that remain resistant to the elements.
Reflective of the Victorian zeitgeist for conquering, progress and industry, residential property was built to accommodate the undulating landscape in the most practical and effective manner.
