Plaster and limewash

Postby dobbsie » Wed Oct 21, 2009 9:51 am

I have a plastered bathroom wall (not lime plaster) which I believe has been painted with limewash. The plaster appears to be crumbling on the surface. Am I right in thinking that the limewash is letting moisture into the plaster and it is then breaking down? Will the wall need to be replastered?
