Caravans occasionally suffer from damp and if the cause is not found immediately, problems can arise very quickly. Damp repair work that we undertake can often be time consuming, technical and expensive. It is wise to check your caravan or have it checked for you, regularly. Once the cause is found (often faulty or the breakdown of seals), the area is dried out, rotten or wet wood is replaced with new, any soiled/ruined wall board is replaced and it is then resealed. This prevents further dampness occurring due to old faults and also helps prevent future weaknesses. However, it is recommended that vans are resealed every 5-6 years, so it would be wise to check them regularly.
