Sink hole under Sidewalk

Posted by Michael Henderson on April 25th, 1998 05:07 AM

I just bought a new home in December of 1997. Landscaping has yet to be done.
Recently, a large sink hole has appeared under about a two foot section
of the sidewalk going from my driveway to my front door. The hole is about
eight inches deep. The house has a one year warenty. This section of the sidewalk
goes over a sewer and is "rebarred". My builder says that since this part of the
sidewalk is "rebarred", just have my landscaper fill in the hole with dirt.
Everyone else I talk to, including another builder, says that the hole under the
sidewalk should be filled in with gravel.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. The second time I spoke to my builder
about this she got hostile.
