Various aspects of damp and wet rot treatments were carried out in a detached cottage located in the town of Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire.
The east elevation, ground floor external wall was treated for penetrating damp which included the removal of the internal fabrics up to a height above the external ground level. A protective damp proof membrane was installed after the old fire opening had been bricked up, before then installing new treated timbers and foil backed plasterboard. Finally, a skim coat of plaster was applied, and new finishings fitted.
Wet rot treatment was carried out in the west elevation of the property at ground level, at the front of the main room, with new joist sections, wallplate, and matching timber floor fitted.
Some penetrating damp treatments were also carried out within the gable walls at either end of the upper floor.
