Building Standards; Getting It Right!

I recently had a concrete apron done around the house. But the concreter has not put a Ableflex layer between the house and the concrete.
Is this really necessary? I'm concerned about water running between the concrete and the wall causing problems to the structure. The soil is class P.

It isn't a regulatory requirement but it is a good idea to have it.
You can get other products, Selleys have a filler that is often used.
3 in 1 Supadiverta. 0.75mm filter. No downpipes diverted. Can delete overflow pipe. Cleaner Neater Cheaper
Supa Gutter Pumper. An inexpensive gutter overflow solution.
