What is capillary damp and how can you recognize it?
Where capillary damp occurs most often
Kapilarna vlaga najčešće se pojavljuje u starijim objektima građenim u vrijeme kada graditelji nisu znali za vodonepropusne materijale poput bitumena i sličnih. Također, stari su objekti često građeni bez temelja, izravno na tlu. Primjeri objekata su kuće, katedrale, dvorci i ostale povijesne građevine.
Capillary damp can also appear in newer buildings, where waterproofing was installed during construction.
