    Hi all,

    looking at redoing our front path by using some thick 9 inch quarry tiles, in lieu of the current thinner, smaller quarry tiles. A trench was dug last year for a new pipe, hence why we need to replace them.

    As you can see from the picture, our door frame sits on a bit of stone which is above the current level of the quarry tiles. (That paving block is just sitting there so to avoid to step in the trench hole)
    Would it be a bad idea in terms of thermal bridging/ breaking DPCs etc. to lay the new tiles so that they are flush with the top of the stone? Or even higher?
    This in order to reduce the threshold height and make it as easy as possible to get in and out of the door with a pram.
    The house is Victorian terrace if it helps.

    Thanks
