Talking of our survey, can anyone advise on the below?
My understanding is that an engineered wood flooring has been laid over the top of a concrete floor with a sheet of plastic between. In the cupboard under the stairs old vinyl flooring remains and this is where the plastic sheet can be seen by lifting it up.
The survey is recommending a full resin damp proof membrane to the ground floor. Is this a general improvement recommendation or essential? There doesn't appear to be any sign of damp on walls only in note attached below (Taken under stairs). A quick search suggests concrete, plastic, engineered floor is ok?
Consider providing a permanent damp proof course to the ground floor following the removal of the vinyl flooring and timber beneath. This may involve a modified resin damp proof membrane with a screed laid over the top. No allowance for new floor coverings. - £3.5k
