A recent straight forward kitchen fit becomes a much bigger project.
To address the problem and due to time scales Dryzone rods and and plasterboard adhesive was used .
|12mm Holes are drilled at 120mm spacing in to the lowest course of mortar, The dry rods are then inserted|
|A paint on damp proof membrane is then applied from wall to floor|
|A cream sealant is applied to the wall prior to the application of plasterboard's using dryzone adhesive|
|boarded room ready for a skim coat of plaster|
|The removal of a few tile reviled the severity of the problem|
|where the mortar had cracked from the wall water had rotted the front beam, rafter and lath|
|water had then ran down the roof and in to the wall causing damp|
The replacement of the roof timbers, re felting, re-tiling and lead flashing of the roof was done in a couple of days. whilst this was being done the kitchen was being plastered by LW Plastering and artex Leicester.
And finally to get on with the original project of fitting a new kitchen.
