Attic chimney breast - brick or plaster?

Post by Jo jow » Sat Jul 22, 2023 11:39 am

Hi there, we’re looking for help / ideas on fixing a chimney breast wall. We’ve removed coving which has been damp in the past pre repointing chimney. We can either add new coving however we have an untidy corner. Would we be better plasterboarding over the brick? Or are we likely to get damp problems if we cover over. Basically. Looking for ideas to make it need and feel more solid. Any advice appreciated!

Hi Jo jow,
If you have not cured the water ingress nothing will sort out a damp wall. Would be neatest to plaster the wall and ceiling.
Regards S
