I refer to the major works you have recently had done, not any use of stone. You posted that it had cured your damp, I wondered whether you should wait to see if that is correct before making such a claim.

I have followed this thread with interest, we don't have and never had the problem with damp, we have air bricks or vents like the UK.  Where are these villas, what age are they and do your neighbours have the same problems?

I would say half of the properties are effected in some way, but not all.  Our other villa near the Sunday market is damp free. Luck of the draw I guess, but dont assume because its a new build it'll be damp free. A lot depends on how they are built and the materials used I guess.

You omitted to mention the important fact which is when this work was carried out so the assumption was it had just happened. Hence my comment that it might be a little early to call it 'cured'. A year on damp free makes it more impressive and would have been worth mentioning in the opening post.

I have heard good things about Paul Cherry from several different sources.

I did mention it was done last year in my opening thread. I'm sure I did lol.

You did, I'm not questioning things for the sake of it, this is a major problem for some and a cure would be/is big progress. I remember the last guy, he came to see me with his magical injection system (which I told him wouldn't work, and it didn't). What I was driving at was exactly when it was done - last year could be 5 months ago and could be a year and a half ago. A full year of Calis torrential rain, punishing heat etc would be a decent period of time to judge it over.

Yes I see your point... It was completed in August.  We know there was major rain during the winter and  we only have to dig a foot done to see how high the water table is.....but thankfully so far everything is fine.  No signs of any blow plaster what so ever.   As i said I will keep regular updates as this problem effects so many people.

As promised just a quick update to say we've just got back from Calis and our villa is still bone dry with no signs of any damp. A massive thank you to Paul at villa4u
