    Default Household problems

    Hope some handy men and people who will know can drop me some advice might be able to stop me taking tent down and getting someone out to look at it. Not weed related but here goes. So the room with my tent in has a en suite and woke up to notice this wet patch in the bathroom. It my roof leaking ? Personally i feel like it hasnt been a leak as the little loft space next to the mark has no marks. Is it just condensation and damp ? The mark doesn't look dirty like I imagine it would be from a leak. It's also slightly damp just like wet paint. House is only three years old but they are built like shit anyway. Is this something I should be worrying about or not. I don't think its much of problem but my partner thinks it could be and just want to put her mind at ease or she will be wanting me to take the tent down and get someone to look at it l, I'm just like we will buy some moisture absorbers. bedroom with tent is quite humid

    Any advice let me know please. Out her mind at ease haha



    Same corner just has a wall in between and it is dry as a bone

    Not a pro by any mean but does it drip? Is it just moist?

    It's just slightly moist mate and I don't think it will have ever been dripping as surely the plaster board would be soggy/soft and it ain't. Well I would have thought so anyway

    Looks like a damp patch to me... I'd get it checked out!

    I was hoping no one would say that haha but I would get it checked if need be, I just don't know if it can be caused with the room been humid. Like the window in the bathroom has water droplets on it (on the inside like condensation) but the out side of the window will be a lot colder than the wall. I see what gets suggested and go from there, I'd also say the light on camera makes it look slightly worse than it is. I have done many of grows now and the only difference this time is I don't have window open all the time where as I use to do room is a lot more humid.

    Maybe storm Dennis has done a job on my roof

    That was my origional thought... or maybe it's just blown some water where it wouldn't normally get. Either way, if it is damp, it won't get better by itself

    I would get someone in to look or open it up yourself. Definitely something you shouldn't ignore. If it dries up and doesn't come back it could have been weather related as you mentioned and maybe not a big deal.

    Thanks all I've had window open for about hour it's dried out a lot and doesn't seem to be leaving any marks. So could just be condensation damp. I'm not home now by time I get back probably all dried up but I'll see what I can do. Better to be safe than sorry

    Before and after. After getting some fresh air in the place

    Is this the inside of a external corner of your house?

    If so I'd happily believe that your guttering got over whelmed by the amount of water that came down and ran over the top and out the back
    Probably running down your cavity and hitting the wall insulation resulting in ya damp patch

    Might be best option, in running autos so at least they won't take to long

    Strangely enough a women at my partners work suggested guttering she must have had this problem before and that couldn't happen in our case. Maybe I should have put more detail. In the picture there is the roof and one wall it external and the other wall is internal. Our house is three story and the guttering would leak into the third floor floor if anything and the issue is in the corner/roof of the third floor. Thanks British and sorry for not explaining in more detail. I hope I also make sense

    I'd still say it's a external issue more than something that your tent is causing
    If it's your tent I'd say windows in the room would be heavily condensated and any other cold surfaces would be the same if not damp

    I see where your coming from there like and the window doesn't even get that much condensation on it just slightly. It dried out fine and didn't even leave a mark or nothing. I'll kee a eye on it. Surely the plaster board wouldn't dry out like that if it was wet through but I don't know

    There's lots of probably causes to this and I'd personally want to get it sorted especially if it was my own property

    Has the dry out coincided with drier weather? It might seem silly but it's been windy and the rain sideways at times, it could be a one off.

    Does look like a damp spot..

    I’d tend to agree with m_c in its source.

    It has got me confused to be fair, it dried out with the window open in 1-3 hours and looks like nothing was ever there. we have still been getting plenty of rain but a tad less windy maybe. It could be possible that rain was blow in somewhere it shouldn't have got like said, the internal wall had the biggest damp patch on it but on the other side of that wall the internal, external and roof was dry as a bone. I agree with what British said and if it was condensation you would imagine the room would have to be very sweaty.

    Hasn't come back and I'm leaving the window open like I use to just in case it somehow was condensation. Feels a lot less humid now and I've just always know leaks to leave marks but maybe that is down to the amount of water

    I just need to figure out where to move the tent to before I get it looked at.

    It's as Dry as a nuns cunt now and doesn't feel soft or damaged



    Thanks for everyone's time I appreciate it guys !
