Postby jhill7477 » Thu Oct 11, 2007 5:05 pm

I have had a 4 meter x 3 meter conservatory with a dwarf wall buit by a local company and on inspection i have found that the foundations are only about 200mm to 300mm deep. the concrete is only 100mm thick.The ground seems prety hard to dig(not soft soil) and has bits of brick and stuff in it.Does anyone know if this will be ok cause keep worrying about it.I havent paid the outstanding ballance yet!!!!!!!!
