Treating damp with Lime Plaster - Ben Kerslake - BS042

Treating damp with Lime Plaster - Ben Kerslake - BS042

This week I am joined by Ben Kerslake from Carrington Lime.

As well as a general geek out about lime, we mostly talk about how to solve damp problems in homes with some simple observation and materials choices.

We discuss why the modern conventional approach of 'tanking' a building is usually fixing a symptom, rather than dealing with the problem.
