Mijas / Marbella. Most houses on the Costa del Sol have humid- ity problems and this is mainly due a wrong approach. If we build a house and multitalented workers are used, in some cases they might not have the requested experi- ence. The goodwill is there, but the professional experi- ence and the needed teaching might miss. New de- velopment construction in the last decade, in some cases, did not consider enough importance to this issue. The cost factor or timing was covered with more importance. Some companies & workers have considered that the so called “hidden aspects” that are not seen and difficult to complain, could be done in other ways.
Most of the times we build over dry ground and think that it does not rain on the Costa del Sol, but this is a wrong approach. Less days of rain, does not mean less water. Many constructions are built with much less pro- tection, equal to cost savings.
We have the classical situation where a terrace or the roof is not waterproof. Other case is humidity by capillarity (where the humidity comes from the ground up the walls). 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, result and cost: An easy way to solve it, is by painting it new each year and live with it. Considering that the problem still stays, and affects directly your health. At a very af- fordable price, but without any result. Another option is by letting it being analyzed by a specialized company that will resolve your situation. There are several solutions, Guarantees can be offered from 10 up to 30 years. The price is higher, but the problem is gone forever. Smaller solutions over the years, can even be higher in price and the issue still is not solved.
To find a solution for this is possible, even thought there is a cost for it, but it should be seen as a long term investment and make your house to a pleasant home without worry. Do not let it affect your health or that the buyer is not interested or pushing you on the price because of the lower value of your property.
In such an important aspect, can make a home to be the worst experience and even injure our health without being aware of it. This means that your humidity prob- lems can disappear forever.
