Garages can be places where damp starts to appear. This is because they are designed to be single skin buildings and so they do not have the extra layers of insulation and protection that our homes do. This can of course be problematic if you are looking to store items in your garage that could be susceptible to damp, or if you are thinking of using the space for a home gym, workshop or office.

One of the first things to do is look to see whether you have any existing damp in the garage space. YOu can use specialist paint to seal the garage and remove the current damp areas. You can then look at having internal walls added (this is much easier than you might think) to give yourself a cavity space that you can fill with insulation.

You should make sure that you also have the floor sealed and look at flooring that can be used in garage spaces to help insulate the floor as well. One area that many people don’t think about is the garage door. If you have a door that is not closing properly you can find that water enters your garage aspace. A good Garage Doors Bath company such as https://www.upandoverdoorsltd.co.uk/garage-doors/garage-doors-bath/ can help you to rectify this.

After you have looked at these areas you will be able to use the space without the worry of damp affecting the items that you place in the garage.
