Redgem Now I’m to fill it, he is saying I will have to level it, buy 4 bags of cement for levelling. I don’t know anything about building cos this is my first time.
Please inspect this, does it need levelling?
How many trips of sand do I need for filling?
How much for a trip of filling sand? How much is a bag of cement now?
What are the next steps I should take?
Regarding the 4 bags he requested for leveling, this has to do with his construction method. You may not require to do leveling if you choose to do a DPC (German floor) immediately after the sandfilling.
To know the quantity of filling sand that your foundation will require, we will need more details about the project. We need to know the depth and the size of the building.
Otherwise, you can order one trip of filling sand and asked them to use it to sand fill the foundation in order to estimate what’ll be required for the rest.
The price of filling sand sand varies from location to location. I can help you enquire from other owner builders building in Benin city. Cement price ranges between 2900 - 3200
