Cavity wall can occur in properties if there is a combination of the below factors.
- Your home is exposed to severe levels of wind-driven rain (zones three or four in our map below)
- Your home is located in an unsheltered position, eg not protected by trees or other buildings.
- The external walls are poorly built or maintained with, for example, cracks in the brickwork or rendering.

This is because Rain could penetrate the outer wall, bridge the cavity via the insulation material and transfer moisture to internal walls, causing damp.
