For the past thirteen years, I have lived in fear of selling my house and “downsizing”. Down deep is the fear that a prospective buyer will discover just how many faults this huge Georgian house has. The Neighbourhood Construction home tutorial showed me that these fears are totally unfounded.
This property presents itself very honestly, unlike so many others it has not been freshly painted prior to being offered for sale and therefore allowed for gaining a good insight into the causes of moisture readings previously taken.
No doubt about it, damp is both intrusive and ugly as well. Following a discussion with Neighbourhood Construction, I made the move to borrow some tools and get started on removing the gypsum from the troubled areas in the kitchen.
