Topic tags/keywords: question basement concrete walls refurbishing restoring remodeling

We removed paneling from our downstairs den which is partially below grade. What we found was one of the previous owners have poorly cover up this hole:

(i’m not sure why the photo is on it side)

After looking at the outside wall where the whole is and removing vines you could tell it had been repaired on the outside.

Two Questions:

1) Could I just fill the hole up with some sort of concrete and call it a day?
2) Is there a reason someone would have had a hole that big leaving the house? The house was built in 1966

This and one disintegrated blocks under the window sill at grade have us at a stand still.

This looks like a hole made for a pipe of some kind, possibly a sewer pipe. I would put mortised brick and seal it up accordingly. Using all cement is not as strong as you might think.

I think I’ve been watching too many movies when I say I worry what kind of otherworldly things might be going on in there. Or perhaps it’s a secret storage cubby hole or something? Haha! Given how they managed to get away with it, you probably might be able to just do a rudimentary fix yourself.

I think for finding the best answer to this question you should need to approach a concrete worker Local SEO Packages In India. A repair worker is a good option for handling the broken area properly. The experienced person can complete the work perfectly.
