    We will be knocking down the conservatory shortly but there is plaster on the outside walls on top of the original brickwork. How can I get this layer off to reveal the original bricks again without damaging them? Will I need to get a professional in?

    Hello. I have a problem with what I believe is penetrating damp on an internal wall. There is no damage to the skirting or the lower part of the wall. The damage seems to be just above waist heigh and is slowly creeping horizontally. It looks like it's just the skim which is falling off. Underneath the skim looks to be cement plaster?. (It's grey and rough) There also seems to be salts being produced making the plaster fall off. What would be the best way to deal with this so I can redecorate. The wall in question has tiles on the opposite side as It's a dry cleaners which originally didn't have tiles and I believe that the tiles are pushing the moisture through to my side of the wall. I really appreciate any help with this problem. Thank you for your time.

    I’ve got swirl patterned ceilings around the house but over the last few months the plaster has started to come off only over the screws that hold the plaster board up (I think its plasterboard underneath?). It has left a few small circular holes dotted around the edges of the ceiling where the screw heads are now visible. Why would this be happening? How can I fix it?

    Hi I recently had a bedroom wall replastered - how long should I wait before painting and do I need to do anything different while painting the first coat? Thank you

    Is it essential that I use moisture resistant plasterboard in a bathroom? I understand there are a few other options such as aquapanel, or is that just a brand name?

    How do I repair a hole in a wall? It is plasterboard, one of my kids has managed to go through the wall with a door handle. It is a rented property and I am worried I will get charged. Do I need to plasterboard and plaster the whole room?

    I have just had my kitchen diner replastered and there are new cracks appearing in the plaster. This started on the ceilings and I have now noticed a hairline crack down one wall. Is this normal? Can I ask the trade back to fix or is it expected and how can I fix it?

    I want to have K render installed on my house but keep hearing stories about it losing its colour within a couple of years. I'm looking for some advice from actual experts and installers rather than peoples opinions on the internet. Are the horror stories true? Do you think the cost of K render is worth it? Do you think it is worth spending the extra money or should I just go for the cheaper option? Would you reccomend K Rend? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
