    Dealing with penetrating damp

    I know it is a building question but hope someone might have some experience they are willing to share. It is a Victorian building with some penetrating damp to some flats) Options include maintaining current good cement mortar pointing, replacing with lime mortar pointing (very expensive ), tanking (causing problems elsewhere).
    Using a breathable barrier such as Stormguard has now been suggested. Had anyone used this, or anything simiilar, on their building. Any comments, opinions welcomed.

      Is it a brick built or stone built building ? Is the damp entering above ground level or below ground level ?

        Random stone. First and second floor flats.

          I appreciate Gordon has nudged me to improve my post to enable someone to give a more specific response. Obviously it has not been in a lot of use but does anybody know of anybody who has used it. Comments very much appreciated.
