I have damp in various places downstairs

Posted by jenny mccarthy on Fri 15 Nov 2013 14:07pm
I have a mid terraced house, built circa 1900. I re-plastered the walls last year and now have visible damp patches in various places downstairs. Some at the base of the wall above the skirting and come about a metre high. Any ideas what could be causing this? There are no leaks in the roof or guttering and neither of my neighbours have damp!

Hi Jenny, Yes it appears that rising damp is the problem, usually leaves a wavy pattern on the wall up to 1m high before gravity sets in.The moisture travels through the capillaries in the brickwork (capillary attraction) like a sponge would soak up a liquid. This moister will bring with it salts and nitrates from the ground that will eventually break down the plaster. The solution is to remove the infected skirts and plaster and install a waterproof membrane before re-plastering. If a membrane is not installed,the fresh plaster will re-activate the salts and nitrates that are still in the brickwork and also allow them to migrate. With this procedure a chemical injection DPC is not necessary but would consider on other walls before damage is caused. Hope this is of use to you Regards Martyn
