Plastering a wall that's had damp
Posted: Sun Jul 28, 2019 11:30 am
We have had excessive damp. We have cured a possible cause of damp by sorting leaky drain pipes. The wall under the door has been taken back to foundations level and built up using engineering bricks and a damp proof membrane. A lot of the damp wall has gone now as we have fitted a French door. We knocked the old plaster and previous bodged damp proof Screed 1.2m high. So we have 0.75x1.2m to the left of the doors and to the right 1.5x1.2m patch and the reveals around the door that needs plastering. What is the best method of completing the task. Getting confused about using a product that needs to be breathable etc.
