Hello,

I have a room which has been "damp proofed", but a bit worried.

Am I correct in saying that the walls are drilled from the outside and filled with the cream and then the affected damp is hacked off from the inside upto approx 1mtr high and then the wall reskimmed?

If you imagine my room has 4 walls, 3 of them are outside walls and one is internal (Chimey Stack).

Now the outside walls have holes drilled every half a brick length, but their is a raised patio area covering half of one of the outside walls, and this appears to have no holes or injection (Supposedly because they couldnt get to it because of the patio)?? Would this be normal practice?

The other problem is two of the walls has been rendered almost to the bottom (2 course of brick showing).

Yes seems like normal practice seen it done a lot. Id advise to fit air bricks above the damp course to provide airflow.
