Gloss Behind Wallpaper Causing Condensation In Room Helped Needed

Postby P Roddy » Sun Apr 24, 2016 2:34 pm

Hi All,

I have lived in my house for 10 years, end terraced with a very cold gable end bedroom, i have always had condensation issues and black mould on certain areas of the wall especially in one corner, i know this corner used to be a bathroom.

We have started to remove the wallpaper and found 3 layers of gloss paint, very old and very thick, this was obviously causing the paper mould due to is not being able to breath and that area being colder.

i want to be able to repaper over the walls but im worried this will just come back or could i use Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner??

Please could you help me or any ideas?
