    TANKING OR DPC

    Hi Guys. Two of the walls that I am speaking about are internal walls. The kitchen and bathroom external walls are fine. They have been tanked. I do not know what they are like behind the tanking! The one external wall could have water coming through from the outside but there are three more...

    TANKING OR DPC

    Well I can see the sense in what both of you are saying. I do and would agree that if the damp cannot get out in one place it has to go out somewhere else on the other hand I dont want it coming in my place either so I have to stop it coming in - some how but HELP! I dont know how. I am going...

    TANKING OR DPC

    Gentleman you are helping and I appreciate all your comments. I do agree that sealing up the walls would cause the damp to go somewhere else. I am not sure if that would happen with a DPC however I am still unsure as to what is the best method DPC or damp proof render (or tanking - is that the...

    TANKING OR DPC

    Those walls in the photographs are internal John! There is only the bit by the window which is external although I suspect that the outside walls are not water proof and need to be repainted!

    TANKING OR DPC

    Hi John It was all plastered at the same time but as you can see from the photo's where there has been a DPC and the room has been tanked up to a hieight of one metre, all that area is OK it is the plaster above the tanking or water proof plaster which is blistering. It does need to be...

    TANKING OR DPC

    Yes I had a damp proof course put in years ago and below that the plaster is fine. What the surveyor said is that the damp has risen above the original damp course! You can see the window and possibly water has come in through the wooden pane but that doesnt account for the rest of the flat...

    TANKING OR DPC

    OK I will do that John. Yes the loo has been leaking and also there was condensation from the shower. The areas are small however the bubbling up is all over that one internal wall. It was all replastered in 1989 when I had the first damp proof course put in so it is not lime although I know...

    TANKING OR DPC

    Which is best. I have had a builder in and he said tanking would be fine. As stated in the other post my neighbour will not respond to a party wall notice so I cannot use a DPC on that wall so I thought I would have it replaster with Sika! I am uploading photographs from the other thread...
