Two main areas within this ground floor property in the gorgeous coastal town of Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire were affected by some damp issues. A combination of faulty rainwater goods and the porous brickwork had led to the plasterwork in one of the rooms at the front and one at the rear to become damp to touch. Both these areas, plus some small sections at the front entrance were exposed to reveal the bare brickwork. We then fitted a damp proof membrane to the exposed masonry, then new, treated timber framing, closed-cell insulation, and foil backed plasterboard. Our plasterer then applied a skim coat of plaster ready for redecoration.
The pictures below are of the work in progress.
No beforehand pictures due to the nature and use of the rooms, and their occupancy.
