I am hoping to have this fixed..I do not have any idea how much it would cost or who to even call for this.
The house is about 10 years old and only started to show these signs about a year ago.
Ahhh, okay. Thanks for the clarification. I just wasn't sure what you were asking.
I cannot give you an honest or accurate estimate regarding the cost for fixing the problems. There are just too many variables that can't be seen in the pictures.
Most of the pictures show very minor things, such as a lack of fill dirt and some mortar missing. If that's all that's wrong, it's no big deal. In fact, you could easily fix it yourself.
But what worries me is what appears to be concrete that didn't cure properly - possibly because it was poured when the temperature was too cold. 10-year old concrete should not be cracking and flaking like that. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this problem could run VERY deep.
My best advice would be to seek out a professional - somebody who really knows concrete - and get his opinion, and an estimate.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
