    Does my wall have damp? (Photos)

    There is a radiator on the wall that has the condensation problem. Makes no difference whether the radiator is on or not to the problem. It's an uninsulated external north east facing wall on part of the property which doesn't receive much sunlight, meaning the wall is very cold. Agree...

    Just a window, that we open when we shower/bathe, but when we remove the plaster we're going to install an extractor fan to help deal with the excess moisture.

    Hello, me again! So, I had three different damp specialists out to look at our bathroom wall (we've been working on our living room and kitchen so bathroom work got put on hold). 1st one said the problem was penetrative damp, with water coming in from the external window sill. Second one said...

    Thank you. Yes, we think the window might have been added there at some point in the last 15 years. Would you suggest sealing this with outdoor sealant or cement? The window sill hasn't been painted in years, and the paint is cracked, so I also need to scrape this and repaint which might help...

    No, the wall seemed fine. We're wondering if it could be just be condebsation. That wall is east facing and the other external wall is north facing.

    Why would it be ok at top and middle of wall but not at the bottom?

    Obviously not a plastering expert! I know they did two coats of plaster. Did one coat then Waited an hour in the van and did another coat.

    Absolutely certain. Several Neighbours have cavity wall insulation but not us (no drill holes). House definitely 1920s - history of our area is well documented. They were built by mining company to house mining workers. In east Coast of Scotlsnd - it's been warm but wet so not had heating on.

    Not at all. Came here with a genuine query I wanted help with (for the record still have the damp problem). Had problems uploading the photos so did it that way. Apologies if I've broken a rule - new here and needed advice.

    No, no falling out, I just don't have the plasterer's details as he was organised through our bathroom fitter. Good point about drawing round in pencil. And no ulterior motives - just wanted some advice. Had problems uploading photos but wanted to show scale of problem.

    Not at all! I'm new to the forum, uploaded the photos in the normal way, but then couldn't access them to add them to my question. Thought it was silly to ask a question without the photos.

    Sorry, should have been clearer - it is on the ground floor.

    Hello, I've just had my bathroom walls plastered (two weeks ago) by a professional. All walls have dried out apart from a large patch along the bottom of the wall which refuses to dry out and is quite dark in colour. The wall was wallpapered before, and I never noticed any problems there before...
