Penetrating Damp is usually caused damaged gutters, over flowing drainage pipes, incorrectly installed windows, down a chimney and balconies that are not properly waterproofed or incorrect waterproofing done. The water then seeps through the walls and causes the dampness. Leaking plumbing can also cause waterproof problems.
