damp stone wall

Postby arron1 » Sat Jul 24, 2010 7:07 pm

I have an old stone wall house with some quite damp walls. outside is old concrete and its higher than the internal floor. Therefore i'm thinking i need to lower the outside level? Am i then better of putting down gravel so the surrounding area can breathe of re concreting to divert the water away from the wall? Or another solution. any advise would be appreciated.
