After completing my survey on a property in Garforth Leeds the problems I was faced with was high ground levels and rising damp.
My client did not really want to hassle of this problem but after leaving it for so many years the plaster was starting to fall off. I assured her that we will take on the full works removing the floor coverings and furniture all she had to do was hand over the keys so then she left us to it and went away on holiday for the week.
The solution to this problem first we removed floor coverings and radiators we also removed curtains fitted our dust sheets and PVC to doors to stop the dust moving into other rooms. So then we had to drop the high ground levels to be able to get the new damp proof course in 150mm off the floor level.
External walls remove the wet plaster install new damp proof course fit plaster base tanking membrane there after fit new plaster boards ready to skim over with plaster finish once dry fit back the timber skirting boards and radiators.
Internal walls install the new damp proof course and apply renovating plaster ready to skim over and match in to the above plaster as above skirtings back fixed on and a big clean.
Job well done supply a 10 years insurance backed guarantee client very happy.
