    Hello,
    I have a small extension on the kitchen at the back of the house (3m x 2m) and it's causing damp in the corner of the kitchen wall.
    I noticed a musty smell in the kitchen last year after we moved in and took one of the kitchen cabinets down and it was thick with mould so I stripped the area of wallpaper and applied a mould remover/killer, used a Flexacryl type roof repair on the roof and then after a month or so things seemed ok so I re-decorated, but I have just noticed damp showing through on the wallpaper again.
    I really can't afford a new roof.
    Should I re-do the Flexacryl?Any other ideas would be great.
    Thank you.

    Pics of the damp, please! Although it does sound like the damp is coming from where the extension joins onto the original part of the house, so there could be a flashing problem.
