PVC DPM around fireplace

Postby goose » Wed Jun 11, 2008 9:04 pm

I'm considering lifting the 'top layer of self leveled flooring' in my living room. It appears to me that the damp proof of the floor is made from a tar impregnated sheet. This appears to be starting to breakdown.

If I replace with a plastic membrane and a new 'top layer' (sorry I dont know what this is called). in the area directly infront of the fireplace, which will have a multifuel stove, should the dpm ne there? or will it be at risk from the heat from the fire??

Many thanks,
