I had an integrated garage in the house. I have recently had a builder come and replace the garage door with a brick wall and a large bay window as I plan to turn this garage into an office. I have contacted building control at our local council and they have rejected the application because there is no Damp Proof Course around the brick pillar.
The building controller, who I contact over whatsapp doesn't respond to my questions. The builder has gone AWOL and I'm not sure what to do.
The one thing I did get from building control was:
I would have wrapped the internal face of the piers in DPM, before plasterboarding
Does he mean all I have to do is put a Damp Proof Membrane around the pillar from the window to the blocks?
I wish he would just respond but he takes days to come back to me and I want to proceed with the job.
Will I end up having to remove the window, fit a Damp Proof Course, and then put it back again?
This is in the UK.
