    Cost to repair damp floor at patio doors


    I have been asked to get a quote for an insurance claim but i'm not sure what trade to contact.
    I notice water damage at the bottom of my kitchen unit. I pulled back the flooring at my patio doors & the floor is damp/wet.
    I have a couple of steps going down into the garden. I think the water has come in due to the heavy rain & high winds.
    How much would I be looking at to remediate the damage and what trade should i be contacting?

    "Sounds like there has been no damp proof apron inserted between the steps and the floor joists.
    Depending on the step type, an apron can be put in fairly easily.
    Cost can be from about £250 upwards to about £500."

    "I’m not really sure what is causing you the problem but it's probably the sill letting in water. You would need to remove the seals and replace them, the work should cost about £500."

    "Depends on the seriousness of the dampness but it could be just a simple job at around £150-£200."
