Groundwork & Foundations Question

How much would it cost to expose the foundations of a single storey extension?

A building survey has recommended it as there are internal and external cracks on the extension which is only a single brick.

Normally to assess the depth of your existing foundations, a couple of trial pits would be required, probably on the corners, your surveyor should advise you.
Basically you dig down the side of your foundations and to the bottom of concrete.
Probably wont take a day, but you will have to allow for a days money, maybe 2 men, cost will depend on where you live.
