You've probably got his sorted by now but self levelling is auto-nivellent. Hope that is spelt correctly. We went to the concrete firm so I just asked for contre de l'eau for waterproof. Someone will no doubt have the correct answer.

Hi brionybob - thank you for that, thanks very useful info.

 

One further question: when filling out the online forms for these suppliers they usually have quite a few different types of concrete available. We're wanting the type you've ordered, including the waterproofing and auto-levelling additives.

 

What are the correct French words/terms for this type of concrete (plus the additives)?

Quote was 480 Euros inc. taxes for 3 cubic metres delivered. 585 Euros if you want waterproofing and auto levelling as we did. Calipro was slightly cheaper than Lafarge but did not include taxes so ended up more expensive. Delivery in last 2 weeks.

Thanks Brionybob - may I ask roughly what quotes you got and how much delivery cost?

We have just bought from Lafarge, big company, there should be one near you. Also got quote from Calipro.
