Damp along external side wall at ground level - Damp Proofing job in Orpington, Kent

Job description

I have had a problem with damp in the porch for 3 years. Had a builder carry out some work in the porch/external wall but it does not appear to have cured the problem. Recently I tested the external wall with a damp meter and it indicates damp along most of the external side wall and part of the front near the corner. Damp inside porch appears to go up to about 1 foot off the ground. Rendering on one part of external wall appears to be going soft. Appears sandy!
If you've got carpentry skills too we would like two glazed internal doors to be fitted. However, we need advice as to whether the doors we want are suitable!



Works completed to my satisfaction. They found broken pipe underground causing the damp. Some minor additional work also done to prevent further problems. Only cost additional £50. Doors, despite being heavy, open and shut beautifully. Would certainly recommend this builder.
