    Driveway Wall 13th Jul 17 at 4:53 PM
    A few weeks ago we found a neighbours car had rolled down the street and into our driveway wall and knocked part of it down. Our neighbour accepted responsibility and we have been in the process of claiming back via the insurance company.

    An assessor has been round and he made the comment that if the wall can't be fixed then they'd have to look at replacing all of it. Now our wall is v old and the brick i dont (horrible stone looking stuff) probably won't even exist anymore! The insurance company called me earlier and said we have to get some quotes to fix the broken part of the wall but i'm not sure how they expect to source an exact match of the brick?

    What is the normal rule of thumb with these types of claims?

    Lots of places do recycled bricks.
