Hi

(see my post for similar problem... username Blue) - I have this week had my damp problem assessed and apparently the old air bricks can be replaced with metal powder coated vents which allow a greatly increased airflow... I have not yet been given a quote for this work (which has been recommended in addition to a Drymaster system to increase the air flow above floor).

Dont know if this is the right advice but it is what I've been told by a (supposed) reputable company?????!
