Rising damp resulting from A tarmac adam drive

Postby oneillplaster » Mon Feb 16, 2009 5:15 pm

Our house is built on a slope and their is a bit of a white (possibly salt) line appearing on the gable end. The roughcasting is needing replaced and abuilder has suggested that the mark might be rising damp resulting from the tarmacaddammed drive - no space between tarmacadam and wall. He also suggested it might not be major concern as line proobably not height of inside floors (due to slope). What should we do? thanks :?

What does your builder recommend? If you are not comfortable with that get a second opinion.
