Damp Proof Metal Strip Damage

Postby irven » Sat Jan 26, 2008 9:57 am

We have knocked through an opening into a new conservatory but accidently broke a metal strip which apparently is the damp proof course.
I need to fix this but do not know how and where to get the material to rejoin the strip.
Can anyone help please

Sounds interesting? I haven't come across anything like that.
Can you provide more detail?

that will be an electro osmotic damp proof course. If you find the controller for it, this will be a small box maybe with a light near the fuse box or something, there may be the manufacturers name on there. Rentokil and Lectros are two of the larger names. Once you have a name, go to the manufacturer direct for advice.
