They fixed the damp-proofing. Yay!
They also screwed in some more clips to keep the Platon tight against the concrete wall.
Lesson learned. I will perhaps supervise more and meet trades on site when I think it's an unconventional material or process I've asked for.
My friend in Beaverlodge put it best: "One of the biggest lessons that I learned on this place was that people who are supposed to know what they are doing, often don’t. I thought it was a small town thing, and I gave up and just ended up doing stuff myself. If someone isn’t going to know what they are doing, it may as well be me. But I was certainly burned by assuming that a “pro” would make the right decision." Thanks Michael for your reflection.
