    note the green corrosion on the rad pipe,and also the darker areas on floor is the damp,which has also made the carpet wet.

    reason for posting these so that you guys can have a look and i want your opinion.[/img]

    an old post i made regarding the same problem.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    how can i tell if they drilled and pumped my walls when i had this work done also.when had house surveyed before i bought it surveyer said that there was damp,along certain walls and needed a survey from damp firm.
    survey came back,needed to hack off plaster above certain level drill and inject replaster etc etc.work has been done over two years now,i have also an isurance backed guarantee.
    having lived in the house i have since learned that above where damp was very bad is a bathroom,water has gone down the back of plaster and caused this damp and over the years salt had appeared,wall was covered with ply board/pine t&g so surveyer could not get good look at all walls
    my house is 100 year old terrace,so what i want to know if there was any damp,have i been ripped off by damp company,as i understand they should drill and inject both exterior and interior walls,but there is no evidence of drilling outside,my partner was here at the time as i was in work and she says that she was not really taking any notice.i am none the wiser but i think that i have been conned and have had a lot of plastering work done for nothing and at a great deal of cost.
