Hi,

I have a client that has been told by her tiler that she can use porcelain tiles (10mm thick) for her patio and that they can be run level with the door sill.
How can this be done without violating the DPC? A slit Aco drain could be installed along the patio with a fall away from the house but this would not stop splash back. Any ideas?

Thanks

Graeme

there are various workarounds,but the biggest problem is if they are indoor porcelain they are unlikely to meet the british standard for slip resistance,
we did one recently level with the cill of 2 sets of bifolds but I ran an aco type drain right across the doors ,connected to a soakaway  and made sure the client wrote me a letter accepting that I was working under his direction, and any future damp issues were his own doing
