I just purchased a home to flip. I am only getting possession of the house in April but starting to do my planning.
The house has a side door where half the door is in the fondation and the top half is bricked. I want to remove the door and fill the fondation wall and lay bricks to match the walls bricks. Because the house was built in the 60's, finding matching bricks will be impossible. Therefore, I will be removing a window in the dining area and replacing it with a patio door. That way, I will be able to salvage the bricks and use them for the side door I will be removing.
My question is: upon removal of the door, what would be the best way to fill the void so it will be solid as if was part of the original wall?
Should I drill 1/2" holes and put rebar? What type of concrete should I use?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
