Damp Proof Tanking Height

Post by BelindaB » Tue Apr 17, 2018 3:30 pm

Can anyone advise what level tanking should go up to where the area to be tanked is lower than an adjoining retaining internal wall, the lower ground level is about 50cm below the upper floor level?

Hi, the attachment probably illustrates better than a photo would. I'm trying to find out how far up the tanking should go within the lower floor area - just to the 50cm or this plus a minimum height above
