Here are a few tips to help prevent damp in your park home;
Check Exterior Walls
You should get into the habit of checking the exterior walls of your park home at least four times a year. Check for cracks so they can be treated as soon as possible. Keep the exterior clean and make sure the textured coating is repainted every three years to keep the home weatherproof throughout its lifetime.
Check the seals around doors and windows
Keep an eye on the seals of your doors and windows making sure that the seals are not damaged or broken. Make repairs as soon as you can because if these are not well maintained, damage caused by broken seals may not be covered by your insurer.
Maintain your roof regularly
You should also add checking the roof of your park home regularly to your list of ‘to dos’ to make sure there is no damage. Check all the joints on the roof and if you find any problems, make sure you that you deal with them straight away. You should also be checking your guttering to make sure it is free of debris and has no cracks or holes. If your roof and guttering are not maintained properly, this may open open future issues for further damage.
