Damp - re-plastering


Postby damp » Thu Sep 13, 2007 10:02 am

I have had a dpc course installed 3 years ago. I employed a seperate contractor to do the re-plastering to the correct specifications which they have failed to do. Mould and damp has started to come back through. Can i just knock of all the plaster and just re-plaster correctly to the right spesification will this work or will i have to knock off all the plaster have another dpc and then re-plaster corrrectly. Please help

If you are knocking the plaster off anyway it would not be a bad idea to re-inject the brickwork again .You should then use a cement render with damp proof additives .finally skim over with finish plaster ,do not use any type of bonding plaster ,its like blotting paper.
