The Costa del Sol has a perfect climate, but when it rains it rains and most of the homes along the coast do not have adequate protection. This is mainly due to the issue being overlooked or not being cost effective during construction phase.
Problems that occur can include:
- Terraces or roofing have not been totally waterproofed against the elements
- Humidity by capillarity (where the humidity comes from the ground up the walls): This occurs in constructions without any floor isolation or built directly on the ground, the humidity finds its way up.
Both options can be solved in different ways:
The easy way is by painting the problem area each year and living with it. But this will indirectly cost you more money in the long run the situation will only get worse over the years. The best and only way to beat the humidity problem is by having a specialised company analyse your problem that will resolve your situation. There are several solutions, guarantees can be offered, and although the price is initially higher then the fist solution, the problem is gone forever.
Waterproofing your home and eradicating the humidity problem should be seen in an long-term investment, without worrying about the health ussue humidity causes or affect any buyers interest in purchasing your property.
Vip Homes offers a specialised service where all their installations are guaranteed in writing for 10 years, and in some cases up to a 30 year GUARANTEE, in materials and installation. This means that your humidity problems can disappear forever.
