    Thanks everyone, I'm fine. On another note Marshy is going to be off work for quite a while with 7 broken ribs + head injuries and erectile dysfunction. I'm happy to give a donation for his milf viagra fund if one is set up ?

    Crumbling damp plaster query

    Where did the lathing plaster come from ? , thought it was solid granite walls ? Solid granite is obviously cold and can definitely cause mould problems inside. Warm air inside condenses on cold external walls. In Cornwall you'll probably have local lads experienced in lime plastering, get their...

    Crumbling damp plaster query

    Can't tell from limited info and 1 pic. Probably best to get a local specialist to look at it. But from that pic alone it looks like black mould which happens in areas where there is no air circulation plus covered in wallpaper. If you can see salts on the wall the 1st thing to do would be to...

    Also it is entirely natural for ground to be wet, unless you bought your house in the Sahara or similar.

    No such thingas rising damp, improve your underfloor ventilation, check on external ground levels and investigate drains. Pound to a penny if you hack off them damp areas you've got bonding plaster or similar

    Has anybody used Natcem 35 on a tanking job. Does it work?

    Looks like it'll cost you a fortune in materials. Normally you use a Sika system which is hard work and can crack or a membrane system with a sump pump which is also expensive but effective if installed correctly. Unless you're in central London or a very posh area it's generally not cost...
