Internal Damp on Chimney breast


Postby michaellady » Mon Aug 10, 2009 8:34 am

We have a 1930's semi, recently refurbished. However downstairs on the chimney-breast in both corners are damp mark appearing through the plaster. Chimney-breast is not on outside wall.
One side actually smells damp, could this be rainwater coming down the chimney and permeating to the outside?

michaellady,
