Strange dark marks
I've recently had a full house refurbishment which included replastering of all internal walls and new deep skirting. However since it's been painted I've noticed strange dark marks (almost brushstroke looking) coming through some sections of the wall, parallel to the skirting. It's only in some rooms, the main one being an internal lounge wall. Can anyone advise what this could be and what to do please?
Sounds very strange, did you have any damp problems before the reskim?

Sounds as if youve had damp a quick temporay fix could be to put a coat of zinser (stain guard) on before re coating. As i said this would only be a temporary solution
