Title: Building damp-free cavity walls

Ref Code: GG33

Abstract1: Cavity walls should be built so that the inner leaf stays dry. Many building details are designed with this express purpose and are long-established. However, dampness is still a common problem in modern buildings, due to faulty design or construction of damp-proofing measures or to wrong choice of material. This Guide shows how to make sure new cavity walls do not suffer from dampness problems.
