Hi guys. So went to a job today a old house all solid walls. The outside window wall above the wardrobe had a big damp patch apparently due to a leaky roof. I advised even tho they don't want to skim above the wardrobe just next to it which I don't get hy leave a square patch... they should hack off and repair the damp as there's a problem there that could get worse and maybe even spread and effect newly plastered wall especially as your adding alot of moisture with new plaster. Any thoughta

Another solution to cure dampness on internal walls is to paint walls and ceilings with mold-resistant emulsion paint. The paint adds another damp-proofing element for internal walls against condensation and helps to prevent unwanted mold growth.

Damp proofing against condensation?



Mould paint doesn't stop damp it stops mould

Hi Pal,
If it was a leak in the roof and has been fixed then hack it back and let it dry before patch, repair and skim.
As you said it’s high on an exterior wall, would normally check the guttering and if the brickwork needs repointing. No point fixing the inside if the outside is still causing issues. Definitely wouldn’t advise blending into a damp area.
