German term or phrase: Versprung in der Rohdecke
Das Landgericht Berlin hat die Klage gegen die Fa. xx und Herrn xx mit der Begründung abgewiesen, dass eine Verantwortlichkeit für den Wasserschaden nicht besteht, weil nicht auszuschließen sei, dass die Oberkante der Dichtung deshalb nicht hoch genug an den Wänden geführt wurde, weil nach einer Planänderung bei der Küchenerrichtung (Vergrößerung in den vorderen Bereich) eine Erhöhung der Fußbodenoberkante durch den Versprung in der Rohdecke insgesamt über die Oberkante der Dichtung erfolgt ist, ohne, dass dies der Fa. xxx als Verschulden zuzurechnen sei.

Help! What on earth are they talking about? Thanks!

Step in the concrete slab


Explanation:
Context is everything.
The change to the slab brought the final surface level above the height to which the waterproofing had been carried up the wall. Hence the water damage.

Typical problem in kitchen construction. Too many cooks....

BTW: That's FLOOR slab!

Example sentence(s):
  • Care must be taken to ensure that the waterproofing layer extends at least 18" up the wall; measured from the finished floor level.
