Capillary Action

What is meant by Capillary water in buildings? Construction materials, like concrete, aggregates and sand, are porous and allows water molecules to rise due to capillary action. This creates a ring of dampness in base of buildings or structure including lateral walls due to accumulation of capillary water.

Rising damp in concrete and masonry is also the result of capillary action. 

Book your blower door tests – two weeks notice!
Friendly reminder to anyone needing to book their mid-construction and final blower door tests.
