Keep Your Floor Protected...

Damp proofing is needed if moisture is present in/on the subfloor as it can cause problems further down the line. An example of this would be the moisture causing the screed to blow as it can not properly key to the subfloor, which instead of showing a smooth sound finish to your floor there will be visible humps and an uneven surface, making it critical that we make sure no moisture is present.
