I've already searced the forum archives and found a few threads on joining concrete slabs, but I wonder could anyone help out with some additional info here.
My house is timber / brick veneer on a slab, and the edges of the slab are stepped down. The timber frame sits on top of the slab and the brick walls sit on the step at the slab edge.
Now I plan to extend the existing slab when I build an extension. I'm going to sub the construction of the new slab out to the pro's, but as I am planning the construction stages of the extension it has crossed my mind - will the brick wall sitting on the slab edge have to be taken down before the new slab is layed?
It would seem to me that the new slab would sit over the ledge on the existing slab, in which case my wall will have to come down first. I was hoping to keep this wall up until later in the project when the timber frame of the extension was connected into the main house.
Does anyone know if the slabs will overlap?
I havn't appointed a company to lay the slab yet so cant ask them.
