Right I'll try to Keep this as short as possible...
My house was injection damp proofed in 1985 with a 30 year guarantee by previous owners in 1985, when I purchased the house I was given copies of letters between the previous owners and the damp company regarding an ongoing problem...
A few years after the work was done the bottom few feet of the new plaster became damp and the owners called the company back, they took a sample of the plaster and said that the wrong type was used....it should have bee limelite, this all makes sense so far.
I'm now in the position where I have chipped the bottom meter of the plaster away ready to re-plaster with the correct limelite renovating stuff but the bottom 4 bricks and mortar are wet (I purchased a damp detected)...is this normal? My concern is if I spend a lot of money re-plastering for the damp to come through again or will this be fine is the correct plaster is used?
In theory the injection still has 5 years guarantee remaining so it should be OK to plaster over with the right stuff right? I've had a damp company over today who have told me I need to re damp proof at a cost of 1.5k but I really felt as if he was just looking for a sale more than telling me the trut.h
Any expert opinions would be great!
Thanks very much!
