    Damp proofing over the top ?

    Chimneys are grey areas where damp company's are involved most will not give guarantees on them because of the soot contamination on the brick work. Usually we just tank with slurry then wash plastering sand 2 coat leave for a week and skim.

    Most of the guys who specialize in one aspect have been plasterers for years and can do all the things you list to a high standard. Don't be a one trick pony.

    How long till i can reskim wall

    You should know if your confident enough to skim it again just keep in mind it could pull in faster over fresh plaster. Maybe just mist coat it then you can see all the bits you need to fill.

    If your struggling to get it you could use S&C that's mainly all I use on Damp jobs.
