    Absolutely and that's because it's a public forum where we can all voice opinion, how boring would it be if everyone agreed, if something doesn't sound or look right I'll question it. The likes of you and the Irish fella who are let's say very vanilla/boring can block me or quite frankly just jog on.

    If I post pictures up I would have the copy and paste police aka @flynnyman all over with me with all sorts of false allegations

    Hi everyone...

    Seemed my original post got a bit silly in the end...!

    Anyway... I finished the job a few weeks ago..

    I tanked everything then applied thistle dri coat to half of the walls and moisture resistant plaster boards to the rest... then skimmed over...

    The walls seem to be fine... however, I have damp coming through on a certain part of the floor... see pics..

    The tanking slurry i used was ( febtank super ) after this, I then used a mix of sbr and concrete on the part where its wet

    There is still a problem with water coming through and it seems quite bad

    Im guessing that the outside there is a mains water pipe running along the side of the building but it would be quite deep (could the problem be this?)

    Anyone got any good suggestions on what I can do????

    Thanks

    You would be best using a damp proof membrane on those walls. I have done the same at one my project.

    I have a condensation issue on one wall. I'm going to take plaster off to half way up. Then what is best to go back on as mentioned on other posts got no rising damp and bricks are dry.

    The main thing is to have a periodical inspection of your property. In order to prevent dampness and potential moisture problems, you must hire professionals who can carefully inspect your property and find out moisture issues.
    There should be a good ventilation system in your home. Moreover, if your home is having a chimney, get a chimney cap installation services because the rain and snow enter in home through unsealed chimneys and create moisture issues.

    All homes have good ventilation systems, they are called windows however some mainly tenants choose not to use them

    We had damp issues and it was because the property was sooo cold and the heating sooo inefficient that opening a window seemed silly.... (it was rented property)

    Oddly when we bought the place and improve the heating no more damp :D
