Painting walls after damp


Postby Palulah » Fri Nov 02, 2007 10:10 am

I recently had a small patch of damp appear on my kitchen wall (near the bottom) We had decking butting up to that section on the outside and have since cut it away. The wall is now drying but we are left with bubbled paint with powdery wall underneath.

I want to repaint my kitchen and was wondering what is the best way to prepare the wall? The wall is quite new plaster board.

any ideas? :?:

Take a look at any one of our damp projects in the DIY Doctor projects section: http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects.htm and ring the phone number for Property Repair Systems. They give free, no obligation advice and we recommend them. They will tell you what you need to do (if anything) and will also be able to supply you with anything you need to do it with but will certainly not try to sell you anything you don't need
