Customer Question

Number of related questions
how do i seal an new concrete slab to an old one which does not have a dpm.
Can I lay a new dpm above the existing slab and seal it to the new slab's DPM?
Is there anyway I can finish a dpm fouled up a wood partition wall or do I have to go back to an brick one?

Hi,

Under the concrete floor you must put in a damp proof membrane. Someone has put in a 2m slab with no DPM. Thus my questions.

Thanks

Thank you for that yes thats true as well.
If the concrete is clean and dry you can roll on a moisture barrier.
Most of them work very well, its best to check with your local hardware store or home improvement store to see what is recommended as good in your are and available for a good price.
You would apply that with a basic roller similar to a paint roller.
As for this question you asked: "Is there anyway I can finish a dpm fouled up a wood partition wall or do I have to go back to an brick one?"
You can clean up the old one and still be in code if the bottom of the structure is still intact and solid.
But if not you will need to build a new brick wall in place of the existing one or you can build one in front of that one if you like.
I would simply remove the old wall and rebuild new;-) That wont cause space loss.
Please let me know how you make out, I will stick with you until this project is complete at no additional cost.
Please rate kindly at this point and you can contact me anytime you need until you are finished.
Have a great weekend!
Thank you
Tech Michael
