Two reception rooms showed signs of damp in the corners where walls were adjacent to the property next door and the owners wanted to rectify the problem before it got any worse.
The project involved the removal of carpets, skirting boards, fires and plaster prior to installing the system over a period of seven days.
The owners carried out the dot and dab plaster boarding method after following advice from the Newton website, with walls being re-plastered and allowed to dry before new skirting, fires and carpets were fitted.
The project was easy to carry out and stress free according to the homeowners and the property is now completely damp free.
