Treating of Penetrating Damp

All contaminated plaster needs to be removed - thus exposing the underlying brickwork

Note the dampness on the wall in the corner - we later found out that the dampness was in fact caused by a leaking balcony from the unit next door

The chemical application - we use Cemflex from SIKA. A cementitious application that permanently prevents rising- or penetrating damp

The plastered area - 3-5 days must be allowed before painting can commence
