Framing outline is visible on the cladding on cold mornings

  • Condensation is forming on cladding where there is insufficient or no insulation – when walls are uninsulated or have insufficient insulation, the area of cladding between the wall framing may become colder than where the cladding is fixed to the framing resulting in condensation forming on the cladding in a pattern. 

    How to repair

  • Condensation forming at the framing locations when the wall is well insulated - this means that, due to thermal bridging, the framing is colder at the framing locations than where there is no framing, so moisture condenses at the framing locations

Interior musty smells

  • There is a high level of moisture in the rooms due to a combination of poor ventilation, not enough heating, and/or poor insulation

    How to repair

    How to repair

  • Ceiling joist spans are too great for the timber size; joists have been overloaded

Wall framing location is visible

  • Condensation forming on the areas between the framing because the wall is not insulated – mould growth is the result of regular condensation

    How to repair

  • Mould is forming on the framing locations because a thermal bridge (framing has lower thermal performance than the insulated part of the wall)

    How to repair

Timber boarding, veneered MDF or plywood – black staining
