Ive recently bought a 3 story house with other half and theres alot of damp.
We have stripped the wall paper off kitchen wallpaper all damp. The walls are now drying out alot there were about 4 layers of wallpaper in kitchen .Theres also no extractor fan and the previous owner had a dryer. This may have caused damp.
The back reception room is very damp going about a ft up can see no salt in plaster.Plaster crumbly by window.
Front reception room wallpaper very damp walls damp .Taken off wall paper couple days ago walls alot drier now. The front reception has couple problems the first being the door is cracked and frame is cracked this lets water in and we have to put towels down and move carpet up to stop getting wet.
The 2nd problem is the pointing is in a very bad way outside the front reception and front bedroom and both of these rooms have flaking plaster.
3rd problem is there is timber pieces little bits used as a covering for front garden these are right up to the front of house and ive lifted them up and seen the first and second layer of bricks with green moss on and chipped bricks and pointing very bad.
Been quoted 980 for full front 3 story house pointing and 530 for brand new upvc door.
How much more is this going to cost me? Was thinking of doing these little jobs and seeiong if the damp goes. hOUSE WAS BUILT 1950
