    We're getting a UFH system in the new kitchen as part of our house extension. We were quoted for a Polypipe system.

    The pipes have been laid out today and (having done a bit of research) I was surprised that they'd been tacked straight onto the damp proof membrane. I was expecting the Polypipe screeded floor panel.


    Do I have any reason to be concerned? Our builder describes it as unnecessary.

    Never been involved in wet ufh, but if that is your only DPM I think I would be concerned with all the punctures through it now.

    Hi there. you should have damp proof membrane, then insulation. vapour barrier over that then the pipework stapled into the insulation. if that is your base DPM and you have ground below. it will need to come back up and re installed im sorry to say.
