       ROB WILLIAMS LIME PLASTERING                        

DAMP 

Here is a classic example of condensation. Warm air condensing onto a cold external wall.

Modern plastic paint trapping moisture. 

We have all seen this !

Damp can be a battle in old houses especially those that have had re-plastering or over- skimming carried out. Modern plaster in an old house is a recipe for disaster as it traps moisture and invites condensation. Incidentally condensation is mostly what damp experts call rising damp.

.

Pointing with a lime mortar will allow the moisture previously trapped by the cement to evaporate. Combine this with lime plaster on the inside and the wall will dry out a treat.
