I'm a complete DIY newbie, and want to install a couple of air vent bricks, indoors, to a damp chimney breast area. Any advice/tips at all please?!
What I've gathered so far is -
I'll need an SDS drill, with an 8mm? masonry bit. Drill holes in to the mortar around the (imperial sized) brick. Plus I'll need a chisel blade too, to finish off the mortar removal. The brick should be OK to remove at this point.
For the cement, I need lime and mortar. I'll need a masonry trowl.
The chimney breast has wallpaper on it, so do I just simply "prod about" with a drill there, in order to try and find some mortar around a brick? I have no idea.
Thanks a lot for any thoughts! They would be really appreciated!
