Timber Frame Renovation - Damp Course

Postby Tally » Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:52 pm

We are purchasing a timber framed house that needs renovating.
What sort of damp course would a timber frame property have?
Will it be easy to repair?
The property is weatherboarded so this will all be replaced and we want to do the damp course at the same time

Any help is appreciated.
