Is this true....a new wall built at my house was not attached to the house wall to prevent damp? It’s under the eaves of the roof and just looks weird and the coping doesn’t meet the wall in the other side? Or am I being picky?!?ImageImageImage

:welcomeuhm:

I don't think you are being "picky" I would expect the wall to be tied in at both ends.

:dunno: I suppose it depends on what you agreed with the Builder/Brickie who put that up...

That gap probably has been left to avoid an issue with the dpc but it would be better tied in. At the other end I'd be interested to know if there are ties put in or if it's just butted up against it. The copings should be on the same level to make it look right. I assume it's all going to be rendered to match the walls ?

Sorry what’s Dpc? Also it’s just butted up against the other wall. No tie ins. Yes whole house and walls being rendered. Thanks

DPC, Damp proof course. should be 150mm minimum above ground level.

EDIT, not an issue on garden walls. except where they meet house walls.
