    Hi all,
    can anyone advise on the best way to damp proof a solid stone wall which now forms an internal wall to my newly built extension - to protect against
    a) damp maybe moving downwards from the exposed part above the new roofline,
    b) rising damp at the bottom of the wall

    I thought about hanging a sheet of DPM over the whole thing and plasterboarding onto battens - is this a bit mad/ overkill? i'm not really a fan of chemical injection DPCs

    thanks in advance
