Hi,

I will be fitting a hardwood frame on a wall of my garage for a side door. The frame has been treated with 5 coats Dulux weathershield treatment all round and the wall is single-leaf dense blockwork (+lintel). My intention is to fill with expansion foam the gap between the frame and the blockwork.

Question: Do I need to also fit DPC down, under and up around the treated wooden frame (i.e. vertically for jambs and horizontally under threshold)?

Will this normal DPC do: http://www.toolstation.com/shop/p27518?table=no

Thank you
