We all know how harmful water can be to old buildings – but what can be done to reduce this? Join this Dorset Group webinar to find out.

You will learn how flooding, water penetration, damp, condensation, neglect, and poor original design can affect old buildings. 

We will also review how you can mitigate or solve these issues in a way that’s sensitive to the building. There will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion at the end.

Kevin will host another online talk on 11 April, this time covering detailing in historic buildings
