All damp damaged plaster as well as any crumbling brick will be stripped to a height above the damp, and this rubble will be removed.
A special plaster mix specified to that used for dam walls, is then applied to match the existing plaster.
It was used to plaster the American Air Force Base in Alaska in the 1960’s and is still sound.
This mix contains chemicals imported from the U.K. or Germany (which have severe damp problems), and it will indefinitely withstand a subterranean water column spurting at pressure from the ground to a height of 3 meters.
If interior walls are replastered, carpets will be covered. It may be necessary for you to subsequently dry clean them.
We do not drill holes into the foundation and pump in silicone due to the potential to cause internal damage, and the inability to monitor the results.
Internal painting work is excluded
If any parapets are not already waterproofed then all parapets will be treated as follows:
A first coat of our high density waterproofing slurry will be block-brushed on.
Then a non-woven reinforcing material going over the tops and overlapping the sides will be embedded in the slurry
A further topcoat of waterproofing slurry will be applied.
