we are having alterations due and an extension. The builder has reconfigured our entrance to the front door by putting a 6 inch drop out of the front door onto a step and then this step goes back up to the path. I said I want the step to be level comming out of the door but he insists we have to allow for "rain bounce" and dropped the drop by 6 inches??
Hi moorfolk, Rain bounce is a real thing and it's the reason why a DPC should be at least 150mm above surrounding ground level. Possibly you could get away with a path level area directly outside your door but will have to accept dirt splatter on the door due to rain bounce. Regards S
