Our bricklayer has installed a DPC on the inner skin of blockwork that leaves around 20mm of the block uncovered. I was concerned that this bridges the DPC and may allow rising damp to occur. He dismissed this and said that the gap is to allow for a key and avoid a slip plane (and it’s all perfectly normal).


Can I please have your thoughts?
