We have a large incline in to a room that needs to be ground down to create a level bench.
Have spoken to a couple of companies to do so as well as an engineer and we have been advised under no circumstances do you grind down a waffle pod slab as it will make the surface to thin.
It’s been classed as a major defect that means the slab needs to be re poured.
Anyone come across this?

If so, I'd be putting that back on your builder stat!
