If a rendered wall is affected by rising damp, inevitably it will require replastering that meets the standards of the rising damp industry. Unfortunately there are no short cuts when it comes to replastering, as the residual salt in the brickwork will continue to attack cosmetic features should this necessary stage be ignored.
Replastering is the process of removing the salt contaminated render all the way back to the bare brickwork. A salt resistant base coat render is applied to a specified thickness, or a thickness matching the existing render. Then in most cases, a finish coat would need to be applied – whether that be plaster, textured, acrylic, etc.
