Driving rain is one of the root causes of damp walls within the UK and homes in the western half of the country are especially susceptible to penetrating damp from wind-driven rain.
The main reason for cavity walls was to capture the water that penetrates the first layer of bricks in cavity trays and prevent it tracking through to the internal wall. The predominant weather pattern in the UK is for south westerly winds to sweep across the country hence the darker shading on the left side of the map.
Wethertex UK have a range of products and systems to protect your walls and stop high wind-driven rain from causing structural damage to your property.
