Morning.
I am wanting to install a new driveway and obviously I'm aware of the '150mm below DPC rule' but I live in a 1930's house which has a rendered 'skirting' of 300mm height, wrapped around the front of the property. The is an airbrick 80mm up from the old concrete path. At the rear, the airbricks sit 300mm up from the patio. Is it right that the DPC is in line with the internal skirting boards, which in this case are level with the top of the external skirting. The whole house is rendered so it's difficult to find any clues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

generally speaking the dpc would  be level with the floor inside your house, it should not be in line with the top of your skirting boards

Top or bottom of the skirting board?

Can you post a picture of the outside wall close to a doorway? If so, we should be able to show you where the DPC is most likely to be positioned.

Email the photie to me, if necessary..... tony AT name-of-website.... and I'll upload for you.

Sorry for the delay but thanks to you all for responding.

I meant the bottom of the skirting board - sorry for not making that clear.

Tony - I have sent you a photo as requested.

Many thanks

The photie....



I would hazard a guess that the dpc is just below that boundary between back and the white render.
