Joint Filling Mix - Fillet Seal

You will need to cut out the joint around the floor up against the wall. This can then be filled with a waterproof mortar - Fillet Seal.

Note - when installing a Damp Proof Course, which should be positioned at least 6 inches (150mm) above outside ground level, you may need to apply Tanking Slurry to any area inside the building where the new damp course will be above floor level. This avoids dampness behind the plaster and skirting boards causing damage. If you are finishing down to a solid (concrete) floor you will need to rake out the floor to wall joint and fill with a waterproof grout made of BondAcryl and sand/cement mix at 4:1. This will seal the high vapour pressure area and should join with the under floor membrane (usually plastic) and the new Tanking Slurry wall membrane.
