    Treating rising damp on internal party wall

    Thanks everyone for your replies! I've attached a few new photos showing the damp coming through the recently painted walls (done around 2-3 weeks ago) - marked by red lines to make them more visible First photo: left side of chimney breast in dining room Second photo: right side of chimney...

    Treating rising damp on internal party wall

    Here's a photo of the fireplace - our neighbours are on the other side of the wall. The damp runs along the same wall to the right hand side of the photo as well, where there's a second fireplace (although not a real one as it's the bathroom directly upstairs!)

A few damp specialists have been over and they've all recommended injecting the wall with a DPC paste and getting...

    Replacing kitchen tap

    Thanks for your reply. I haven't bought the new tap yet - is there a particular type of flexi end which is easier to install or more durable?

    Replacing kitchen tap

    I'm looking to replace our kitchen tap with a new mono mixer tap with flexi tap connectors. Our existing piping looks different to ones in videos online - can anyone explain which existing bits I need to remove and whether I'll need to get any additional connectors/etc to fit the new tap? E.g...
