This Building Technology File (BTF) deals with condensation. Condensation on internal surfaces is the cause of unsightly mould growth in houses and of water collecting under and dripping from factory roofs. However, it often occurs within the building fabric where it may not be so obvious. This may be of greater consequence, leading to decay of timber and otherwise threatening the structural integrity of the building. Ironically, this interstitial condensation can be the result of incorrect use of thermal insulation intended to stop surface condensation.
