The SymptomsRender showing damp damage
Who hasn't experienced it at some point - the mustiness of damp walls in old buildings with no or insufficient insulation? And when the plaster begins to fall off the walls, salt blisters with paint flaking appear on the facade and spots of mould make rooms impossible to live in, this is usually the end phase of a process which has been going on for some years.

At this point it would be wrong to treat these damaged areas "cosmetically" with only mortar and paint, and have to put up with a very unhealthy living climate with higher energy costs. This stage of damage requires thorough corrective action in order to prevent total dilapidation of these sections of the house

When moisture from the ground rises up a wall due to the capillary action in the masonry material, it is called rising damp or salt damp.  It carries with it corrosive salts, and causes a number of serious problems, including:

Stained walls

Blistering salt-ridden and flaky paint
