DAMP SURVEY FINDINGS

Dampness affecting one room which was extended 10 years ago, moisture patterns was restricted to 100mm above skirting board level, "thinking this is wall plaster bridging DPC problem", I asked client if I could remove skirting board on one wall and as expected the wall had been plastered to the solid concrete floor drawing moisture from beneath the existing damp proof course into the wall plaster, we exposed the DPC to show the client and recommended the wall plaster should be removed to the height of 1.5 metres to prevent possible salt contamination re-plaster to specification and does not require a new damp proof course the client did have 2 other quotations off local companies and both recommended new DPC, sometimes a destructive survey is needed we saved client £850.
