Has anybody tried to prevent salitre by making long cuts in the plaster above the base boards to give the moisture an excape exit instead of climbing up your walls and causing salitre. Our contractor Gustavo has recommended this approach claiming that it is successful 90% of the time. I just wanted to know who else has tried this remedy, and did it eliminate much of the salitre problems. Thanks in advance.
If anyone is considering using his services, you are welcome to contact me privately. After 6 months working with him as architect/builder, we have separated him from the project. For anyone who has built a home anywhere, you will know this was/is a big decision. Beyond my comments, there are other sources of information on his work. For those of you that live locally, Francisco Nando of Las Salvias Aluminum is aware of some architectural review board that covers architects, including those from Guadalajara. If you are aware of this source, you can check on your own or check with Francisco in how to access that information source.
