Devon Damp Proofing renovated a damp lean-to on a traditional stone built cottage in Torbay and provided a tanking solution to damp proof the main living room.
In this traditional stone-built property applying a damp proof course was impractical so the living room was tanked to allow application of a specialist plaster finish and a permanent solution.
Before this work was carried out the occupier was considering moving to a more modern property believing that the situation could not be solved.
The lean-to which was previously used as a tool store was ripped out and the stone surface damp proofed with a tanking system. The membrane provides a waterproof barrier over the floor and the whole height of the walls.
The room was refinished with a specialist renovating proof plaster to form a fully usable utility room.
