Peter suggests this outside/inside checklist. On the exterior of a building, leaking or overflowing gutters and defective downpipes usually exhibit one or more of the following:Visible dripping when rain has ceased.Staining of brickwork underneath showing up as a comparatively dark patch where the brickwork is wet.Appearance of efflorescence on the surface of the brickwork.Local rot in window joinery close to, or directly under, the leak.On the interior of a building, look out for:Plastered finishes that are damp to the touch.Localised areas of water damage to ceilings.Development of mould growth and mildew on limited areas of walls.

Spiring came up with a clever but not immediately obvious idea for the first-floor sash window: look closely and you might just notice it’s a little larger than would be standard. “It’s about 20cm wider,” he explains. “We enlarged it lengthwise, too, carefully keeping the original proportions. It’s very subtle, but it makes a lot of difference to the amount of light it lets through.” The reason it’s so subtle is also because the builders skilfully used London stock bricks (like the originals) to rebuild the arch formwork at the top of the window and then bricked around that and repointed the lot. “Talented chaps!” says Spiring.
