New build watershock - Understanding damp problems in new homes

New build watershock - Understanding damp problems in new homes

The problems with our housing stock and the demand for new homes to be built at scale and speed has never been higher. But, with the rush to build these new dwellings to ever tighter building standards, why are we increasingly seeing new properties suffer dampness, condensation and mould problems?  

In this live webinar, we take a look at what exactly is going on within these new builds and their associated problems. In addition, we also look at what a surveyor, building or property professional needs to consider to determine the root of the problem along with what we should be telling our customers/clients.

To learn more, join us and Tony Isbell from Acres Building Consultants Ltd for our upcoming webinar on Thursday 28th September. To join, simply click on the button below.
