Next, he identifies the specific type of moisture problems. Is it caused by soil moisture? Moisture penetration? Hygroscopic moisture? Rising damp or condensation water? Has any damage already occurred and if so, is it positioned below or above the ground water level? Various measurements may also be completed to determine moisture percentages and the extent of penetration.
