Garage base damp proofing and edge of slab

Postby vitessesteve » Mon Aug 17, 2020 5:47 am

My concrete slab is already done. I have a DPM under it. This is what it looks like now the shuttering is off.

The concrete got between the DPC and shuttering. I will putting a DPC on the slab edge under the floor plate. What should I do about the edge of the slab?

Hi vitessesteve
You really need to take your cladding down the sides of the floor slab to prevent water ingress. You could fit a wider DPC under the floor plate, take this down the edge of the slab and cover with cladding.
