- Damp garage – any cheap solutions?
My garage is an old single skin type made out of concrete sections and an asbestos roof.
Went in today and water is dripping off the roof, cloths are going mouldy and a bottle inside a sealed cardboard box was covered in condensation when I opened it!
The garage is well ventilated, has power but no heating. Is there a cheap, effective option to reduce the levels of damp?

does it have power? If so then a decent dehumidifier with a constant drain.
plus insulate it – Celotex on roof and walls, anythign to stop water condensing inside.
Is the floor damp – coul look at sealing it – the moisture has to be getting into the air in there from somewhere to cause that level of condensation.Posted 5 years agoHazeMember
I have the same problem, about 50% of the perimeter is sunk into a sloping garden. Damp on one side but not on the other.
Drilling three 4″ diameter ventilation holes improved things massively but I still get the urge to tear it down and start over.

Was going to suggest all that you need was ventilation until I read your post properly.Posted 5 years ago
My garage is the same construction and it has no condensation. Unless you had a lot of moisture getting in somewhere I can’t see how the massive gaps between roof and wall ventilate any moisture out.
