    i've just had another look and i can see that a damp proof course has been previously done by previously owners, all around the front and side of the house (its an end terraced). The holes for the dpc stops where the dining room is on the outside. There has been an extension to the kitchen and as far as i can see there is no DPC holes or brick/cavity vents beyond the dining room so nothing for the kitchen. Also when i checked the back garden i cannot see any brick vents or holes for DPC on the outside so maybe this is the reason for damp as there is no ventilation?

    While checking back garden, there are quite a few gaps and holes for the water to seep in under the property? the gaps are where the floor links to the wall for kitchen and dining room. please see attached pics.

    maybe i should try and fill in these gaps and see if it helps?

    oh and also i have been quoted £140+VAT for a Drain CCTV Survey to be done, this is only for peace of mind to check that there isn't any cracked pipes causing leaks etc

    What you guys think?

    Probably best to just let the plaster dry out. Take skirting off. Scrape bubbled paint off. Leave to dry. See what happens.

    Any work you do will void any guarantee the builder may have given to you.

    :oops: my apologies!

    yes builders sanded down a few times and repainted the area, it came back- bubbled. Then they sanded down again, injected some damp proof, waited for it to dry and then re painted. Still the same THEN they said its damp and not their problem hence why i am trying to work it out :(

    The builder should have made you aware of the damp prior to any plastering work.

    Like i said, take skirting off, scrape off bubbling and leave for a couple of months. Dont put anything on it. See what transpires (big word for astravax) :p
