Rising damp is a term for any groundwater that is drawn upward through the porous building materials such as cement mortar, bricks, etc. In the majority of cases, this is a slow process and may be present in the property for quite a few years before any signs of the problem begin to appear.
Penetrating damp is often referred to as rain penetration and occurs through walls, Roofs, windows or door surroundings, this can occur when there are defects in roof tiles, cracked pointing, blocked weep holes or defective seals that then allow water to penetrate and enter the property, or when the external ground abutting the wall is above the internal floor level, this will cause a low level penetrating damp which will usually not exceed 1 meter in height and is not to be confused with rising damp.
