I've just come across this thread and wondered if yours is the same as the issue I have?
When we bought our house a year or so ago, the survey brought up an issue with the level of the drive/paving being too high against dpc. The reports stated that it needed lowering.
As I am now re-doing the driveway with new gravel and removing some broken paving from around the house, I thought it would be ideal time to address the dpc problem. However, have discovered that there is a solid concrete bed running upto the house, preventing me from lowering the level of ground easily.
Is this similar to your situation? How did you succesfully remove a channel 300mm from the wall? Did you cut two cuts and then remove the channel? I'm concerned about disturbing the structural integrity of the house wall and foundation.
Any advice appreciated.
