Dampness in Wall

Recommended Posts

There are 'streaks' gradually appearing at the top of part of my kitchen wall by the ceiling. The plaster is starting to flake. The bathroom is above the kitchen but I can't find any obvious signs of leaks after lifting a floorboard. There is some damp but can't work out where it's coming from. Any suggestions? Photo's should be attached. Thanks.

Hey PMking

Its really hard to tell because your pictures dont indicate any orientation, and they are really really small.

On the wall with the cracks, is that an outside wall too, and is it a cavity wall?

If it is, can you take a big picture of the outside wall?

I'm not an expert but I would guess that the damp is from the moisture in your kitchen condensing in/on your cool external wall. If the spot in the picture is above the hob then thats probably what it is .... I'd still get someone with experience to look at it. I could also be some exterior pipe work dripping down the wall.
