Concrete directly alongisde house
The small area between my new house (built circa 1900) and the pavement has been at some point in the past filled in with concrete. Unfortunately, this concrete slopes downwards towards the airbricks (helpful!), and so we need to take it all up.
We want to get this removed but were struggling to identify the correct tradesperson for the job. Would you recommend a driveways specialist for this job, or is there someone else who is better suited?
I am concerned about potential damage to the foundations and rest of house as the concrete is adjacient to the house. What precautions need to be taken when working this close to a house?
Many thanks for your time
It sounds like it's just a standard concrete path. It's probably between 4 to 6 inches thick, this will easily break up with a jackhammer. I doubt it's part of the foundations. A builder or driveway expert is the trade you need .
