 Post subject: Rising Water
PostPosted: Mon Dec 10, 2018 12:58 pm 
Hoping someone might be able to help me.

My shed's concrete floor has damp coming up from the ground below. Actually, I don't think it's damp, not in the standard sense. I think it's moisture due to rainfall. The footings have DPC going all around but I've been told that DPC stops water vertically not horizontally. Apparently, the water is rising upwards, and then it is seeping sideways across the DPC, and then the breeze ...

 Post subject: Install wall Vent?
PostPosted: Mon Nov 12, 2018 12:21 am 
Faded grey marks have appeared on my bedroom wall. They came through autumn/winter last year as well but I then covered them as they dried out in the summer.
I guess this is due to condensation as I get some on the windows too.
I have read I could get installed a Perma Vent or a Passyfier® 230 - Sleeved Dehumidifier Vent - Rustic / Condensation Control to get rid of the problem.
What ...

 Post subject: Anti Condensation paint or Anti Damp paint
PostPosted: Tue Nov 06, 2018 10:51 am

During the winter months, when it is very cold, the wall literally becomes wet. you can see the moisture on the wall, and it sometimes drips down the wall.

I want advise on which paint I can use to reduce this wetness on ...

 Post subject: Vent outside house and damp
PostPosted: Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:36 am 
Hi, We have an issue with damp on the inside of our front external bay window. It’s strange as the marking are like drops coming down but the wall itself is not wet. The seals in the up can windows are all fine . We don’t have condensation on our windows either. We have a vent directly outside the bay window that comes out of the pavement. We’re unsure of what this. We live in ...

PostPosted: Wed Oct 24, 2018 7:16 pm 
Hi there..

For some months we have had a damp mark in our kitchen, which is on the exterior wall, rising up about 12 inches at it highest point. Outside, the bricks up to a certain point show signs of damp. Our toilet and underground drainage all operate in this area, and as a result of the damp, I dug out our gulley to find the clay pipe had cracked at the mouth of the ...

 Post subject: Damp proof course quote
PostPosted: Tue Oct 23, 2018 11:25 am 
Hello. I've just had a quote for a damp proof course to be done on a wall that's 9.3m x 4.3m. It's £900 just for the course. No skirting or rads to be taken off and no plaster removed. Is this excessive?

 Post subject: Damp patch on wallpaper joins
PostPosted: Thu Oct 18, 2018 1:04 pm 
Hi all,

RE: the photo's attached - in my lounge (ground floor) I have damp patches on all of my wallpaper joins. The wallpaper was put up in February 2018 and these patches have been here pretty much ever since, never getting worse or better.

Is this damp or a decorating issue?

It seems suspiciously contained to just the wallpaper joins but maybe that's what is to be expected?

It doesn't seem to make any ...
