    I'm looking at using DPM sheet before laying insulation and floating subfloor on an existing concrete floor.

    What's best practice for tying in the DPM sheet to the wall ? Can i stick it to the current floor level painted plaster, or am i better off cutting the plaster back, say to 50mm above the existing floor and tying the DPM into that ?

    Thanks

    Ideally cut back the plaster - it can and will wick moisture up the wall
