    "Hello,

    Generally you have a damp proof course and a damp proof membrane, a damp proof course depends on the structure of your floor and will generally sit beneath your ground floor structure, a damp proof member generally sits above floor level, ie bitumen, a latex solution or a screed.

    Thanks
