Salt Damp

While Glenside is filled with character, the majority of the suburb is filled with historical beauties. Unfortunately, these homes, while stunning, can present the unwanted issue of salt damp.

Salt damp occurs when moisture that is at the base of the home rises through the exterior walls of a property, meaning that the house was not constructed with damp proof-course.

In Australia, homes that were constructed before 1875 were not built with a damp proof course in their foundation. Hence why heritage style homes tend to be more prone to salt damp on exterior walls.

At Detail Building Inspections our building inspectors are aware of this issue in heritage homes and check for existing and potential salt damp contributing factors in the following areas of a property:

  •    Windows/ window sills
  •    Doors and door frames
  •    Chimneys
  •    Wall ledges

Once we have completed a building inspection of the home and find that there are definite findings of salt damp on the property, our inspectors will outline which trade professionals should be your next point of contact if you choose to move forward with the purchase. This gives you the opportunity to factor any repair costs into your budget or adjust your offer with back up evidence.
