5% Moisture Content is too high!

Epoxy Liquid Damp Proof Membrane applied to subfloor

Bluebell Cottage is a part thatched, part slate roofed cottage near Dalston.  The oldest part of the cottage is approximately 300 years old and consists of an
exposed crook beam structure and a thatched roof.  The property was in need of major renovation which has been carried out by Hogg & Robinson Limited of behalf of the owner.  At this moment in time, the project is underway with
Origin Direct carrying out subfloor works prior to the installation of  45mē of 120mm wide, Solid European Oak from ORIGIN HARDWOODS.  The bottom room contained a very high level of moisture so we have installed an epoxy, liquid damp proof membrane to ensure that the hardwood flooring is fully protected from residual moisture.
