Simply Build It

Go to our damp or mould project and read through. The company in there, Lectros, make all sorts of products to keep the walls free of mould etc. For paint you need an external masonry paint with bacteria prohibiting properties and you can try contacting Property Repair Systems via our DPC injection (small jobs) project. They give free, no obligation advice.
