Damp patch on newly plastered wall

Hi all,

I have had my wall replastered approximately 2 months ago and I have this patch that persists.

I have kept the room well ventilated and have recently had the heating on to try and encourage the dark area to dry out (although it is not particularly damp).

I have been told to gently hairdry the area which seems to work slightly before reverting back.

Does anyone have any idea of the cause of this and the next steps I should take?

Thanks

Hi guys, thanks for your comments.

I may have been done over but if someone could suggest what I can actually do to fix the issue that would really be appreciated.

What is the other side of that area?
Why did the job need doing?
Had the original plaster blown due to water ingress that is still ingressing?

1 have a look outside if thers a problem
2 if ther is sort it out
3 hack wet bit out leave it to dry
4 fill back and over skim again but a nicer job
Or hack the place scratch coat and insolated boards
 
Hi all,

Thank you for your feedback.

As a bit of background, I had a damp patch on the far right side of the area that has been replastered. I investigated the outside and found that a guttering problem had led to water eroding the brickwork and I got that fixed.

I then ripped the wallpaper off to expose the old damaged plasterwork. The plasterer then removed the plaster from the brickwork (pictured) and then replastered.

The damp patch that I previously had is nowhere near where this dark staining currently is.

I would really appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks
