Countryside Cottage, Scottish Borders

The cottage

This lovely 100+ years old countryside cottage from the Scottish Borders had dampness problems for a while, which just worsened over time.

The measurements uncovered rising damp in several parts of the kitchen area.

The customers have chosen the eco-friendly Aquapol masonry dehydration system for their rising damp problem because it provided a long-term, permanent solution to the problem.
