Wall repair job- update from the road (Edinburgh EH12 COSTORPHINE)

Update on a Wall repair (wall straightening and rennovation project) in Edinburgh.  

Straight walls are important because if they are not straight to begin with, it creates revonnation nightmares down the road. An unstraight wall can cause problems for plasterers, carpenters, plumbers and even floor renovation projects.  

Edinburgh customers go here for wall repair or wall straightening services. Also see: Insurance work for wall repair (flood, fire, subsistence).

Poor construction often results in unstraight walls. Damp or subsidence can often cause walls to come out of joint.

After- with wall repaired and damp-proof, painting can be done. 

The Lime plaster was usefull for its strength, as required for the fixing of the kitchen and the fact it was a basement flat, prone to damp.

This customer thought the wall was a goner, but with the right technique, the construction is stable again and the job was painted after plastering was dry.
