Repairing damp walls
by: Shawn

Hi,

The only way to fix your damp wall problem is to find where the dampness is coming from and to stop it.

Your dampness can be due to a number of things including a leaky roof or walls that do not have a proper vapour barrier.

Once the cause is rectified then the wall itself may need to be repaired or replaced. Followed of course by sanding, primming, sanding again and then painting.
