So basically I had a window and now it's a set of doors that goes into an extension.

Where the window used to be the floor level is at dpc level. The problem I have now is I have a void where the cavity wall is.

Iv laid dpc in the void and filled with concrete but my question is now do I really need it?

It over lays the brick work either side of the cavity and I still have the original dpc that was put in when the house was built. Pictures to show what I mean and i currently have laminate down in the kitchen and extension.

I'm trying to build that cavity wall gap up to lay my flooring over it when it comes to tiling it should I expect damp to rise up through the brick work still? I would like to lay an oak threshold over the brick work as well but I can't glue it down to the damp course and i don't want holes in it either. The original builder just glued it to the brick work that you can see in the photo. Would this of been ok or would it of rot over time?

Whats the best course of action to solve this problem. ImageImageImageImage

You could cut the dpc out and apply a couple of coats of synthapruff

That is a good idea. I have some of that as well. I can cut it all out and then put some self levelling compound down and apply the sealer.

Sometimes it's good to ask in places like this incase the obvious slips past you lol.
