damaged DPM in floor slab

Postby pugsman » Mon May 05, 2008 10:26 pm

I have to re lay some pipes in the ground floor slab in a new location and damage to the DPM has occured. It will not be possible to join a new piece of DPM to the old piece. Can I get some sort of waterproof paint or coating to put on the newly exposed concrete prior to re screeding
Or what is the best method for relaying the screed whilst maintaining the damp proofing?
Many thanks.

What type of DPM is it that you have damaged?
