Ok, I thought it was insurance that covered all damage by builder.

Why wasn’t the cost covered by your asset protection insurance if it was done during the build?

There shouldn’t be a problem to make the changes - if it’s physically possible to do so.

Have you signed your final contract with M? Usually you can do this if you haven't yet signed your contract and paid your 5% deposit.

I would just to be sure. You never know with these builders what you will get if you simply ‘assume’. Lol

I’ve always read that anything over 3m has to have a join. Can you reduce bench to 3m if you really don’t want the join?

Yes, getting that done, but they only do the concrete step right at the front door, so we will have the concrete extended out the font of the portico beyond…
