Hello - We found out Friday morning that our flat roof over our son's bedroom needs replacing - we found a large puddle of water on his carpet underneath what we have always thought was a painted wood beam. It's had a crack in it for as long as we've owned the house (11 years) and the beamw was wet and swollen. We are getting quotes for a new flat roof. Our house is 111 years old (built in 1907) and the roof is fairly steep for a flat roof.

I thought it might be a good idea to remove the paint off the beam to let it dry out better to find that actually the wood beam is covered with at least 1/2" of now-damp plaster. My query - is it OK to remove this damp plaster from the beam or better to leave it for now? I can see wood underneath as I made a hole in the damp plaster to see what was underneath.
