Damp Proofing Question
Damp top corner in bedroom
I have a large wet damp mark, top corner of one of my bedrooms. There are no rooms above (other than the loft), am semi detached. Who should i get to help me withthis? how do i know if its the roof, gutting or just damp? Thanks!
short answer is that you will need to get up a ladder and check the area. it is likely to be guttering first followed by loose tile secound. it is unlikely to be 'just damp' regards paul

If it's a wet patch, water is penetrating from the roof, IE parapet wall, Loose tiles, Lead flashing. If it is mould then it is more likely to be condensation.
Try a trusted roofer before calling a damp specialist.
