    2 x bedrooms, Downstairs room (morning room). Similar size to a bedroom.
    I have two bedrooms that need the wallpaper stripping, cracks filled, then repapering with heavy duty lining paper before painting. I don't mind whether I supply the paper or the tradesman supplies the paper. Whatever is most efficient and cost effective.

Damp Proofing, Tenterden, TN30

  • I have a reoccurring mould and damp problem in my
    Home. Caused by what I believe to be condensation. Not so much downstairs but upstairs. We are 4 detached houses on one street and two of the houses have a vent at the top of their houses (above roof tiles at top of house)my house and my neighbouring house are the two that don't. In particular in the largest room in the house we have a sliding door which goes right the way across the back wall (external wall) and even though I usually keep my wardrobe doors open the build up of mould and what looks like black mould is very concerning. This has been going on for years and I am very concerned for my families health my children's especially especially. Please help! Everything I own including my children smell of damp and I'm really worried.

    The house has been insulated. Although I don't know if this has any effect on the building but the house had wisteria all the way around it and as it is very wet in Tenterden and the leaves and petals got very wet and as they stayed on the building they probably didn't go the external walls any favours. I have been putting up with this for far to long and when I read about the effects of black
    Mould it scares me.
    Please please please help if you know what to do to resolve this problem I am
    Having.
