Hi, I arrived home from work and I could see the vertical blind in my front window had come down together with the plasterboard which held the blind in place. It seems damp/rain penetrating the cavity had lead to the plasterboard giving way. I’ve had the roof fix and outside wall pointed andnow wish to seal the cavity above the window. There are two loose pieces of rotten wood visibly spanning the cavity which I presume had some part to play in supporting the plasterboard which gave way with the damp/rain however the 2 pieces of wood look fit for nothing.

I was thinking of having ago at sealing off this cavity wishing to reinstall the vertical blind. I’m lost as to how I would go about this as I can’t see how a piece of material could be suitably fixed in place. Any ideas or recommendations much appreciated. If this job is beyond me I’ll happily get a tradesperson in. What do you think? Many thanks for your anticipated help.

Regards, Steve

You should have a cavity tray to stop the damp pentetration.
