Additionally lateral dampness was a contributing factor, due to the height of the external ground level in relation to the internal floor level. Kenwood rectified the problem by installing a chemical damp proof course and providing a tanking system. Tanking is and impervious barrier applied to the brickwork which is used to prevent lateral dampness. The walls within the building have been replastered and skim finished, ready for redecoration in around a months time.
