damp proof membrane position

Postby agb32 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 8:41 am

I'm about to put a stud wall, and a raised wooden floor onto an existing concrete floor.

What I was thinking was to put down a damp proof membrane about 1 brick wide, put a single layer of brick on this, and then put the stud wall/floor boards on this. Is this the right way of doing it, or should I put the brick first, then the membrane, then the wood?

Take a look at any one of our damp projects and ring the phone number for Property Repair Systems. They give free, no obligation advice and we recommend them. They will tell you what you need to do (if anything) and will also be able to supply you with anything you need to do it with but will certainly not try to sell you anything you don't need
