Hi Scott,
The best fix is ripping out and relaying the raised panel. And make sure that they bolt the new panel to the garage so that it doesnt raise again. I imagine that will cost something like $1000-$1500.
The cheapest fix would be to get a grinder (with diamond blade) and make a cut or two to channel the water to the grate. Although you will still be left with that trip hazard. But you could bevel the edge if you were real handy with a grinder.

Rory

Give or take a little. Its roughly $70/sqm for plain or $110/sqm for exposed aggregate. Then you have excavation and drain installation on top of that.

The vast majority of homes ever built do not have concrete paving all around them. Its not a building necessity and not something you need to stop damage happening its just something that lessens the chance of damp problems which should be a small risk anyway on a properly constructed property. Concreting your whole block would lessen the chances further but you don't have to do it. The house would have been built with a damp course so no damage should have been done if that damp course is above ground level. . But get it checked out if something looks wrong.

Sorry for not getting back to you Back Pocket.. I have been inundated with more quote requests than I can handle. Im working all day and then have 3 kids to attend to when I get home. Ive been booked out for about 3 months in advance since October and have only been able to go to about 1 in every 100 quote requests since then as I am having to concentrate on keeping my schedule. I am only a small operator running one job at a time which I work on personally so I cant get to everyone. Its never been this busy before so things should return to normal soon. All I can say is keep calling and I will answer eventually, If you ever become a customer I will have your number saved in my phone so I will always get back to you.

That's interesting, I've never seen a total pebble aggregate mix. Could you post a pic?



Sorry it took me a while to work out how to host a photo and then share it:

These are an example of one of many pebbley mixes that are smooth on the feet, suitable for around the pool:
