Horizontal foundation cracks in your outside foundation stem wall? This could be a serious problem. Usually these horizontal cracks are a result of the re-bar oxidizing. When re-bar rusts it grows in volume putting pressure on the vertical wall, at first cracking it and given enough time will fallow the re-bar all the way around the stem wall, causing water to inter the interior floor.
Foundation repair methods for foundation settlement: Lifting a sinking perimeter foundation with helical piers. Actually lifting the home’s foundation back into position. This foundation repair method is costly, but stabilizes the perimeter foundation. Usually a engineer’s report and data points are needed to insure proper placement of the helical piers. Once the exterior stem wall is placed back into position, the interior floating floor, that is heaving upwards is then lifted, usually using grout injected under the floor slab to lift back to position. If lifting is not required: Another foundation repair method is, grinding the interior floor cracks down to allow for carpet or tile flooring. Cracks are filled using cementitious patch materials, then stitched using #4 rebar roughly 3 to 4 ft. apart, and epoxied into place with structural two component epoxy. Then adding a surface floor leveler is added to level floor. “Carbon Fibered Stitching” or “epoxy injection” methods are not recommended. Call James Belville 602-418-2970
Heaving Foundation Floor Cracks
Interior heaving floor cracks, tile cracks, cracks in the dry wall joints, and doors not closing, are not caused by expansive soils, as most people have been told by some engineers and “salesmen,” who don’t know the answer. And when they do give a reason, it is usually this: “You home was built on expansive soil” or “Your home was built on farmland.” Some salesmen are selling a fan in your attic for the “solution.” to dry out the moisture under the floor of your home. Don’t buy into this upsell. Call James Belville 602-418-2970

Floor Crack Grinding & Leveling
Cracks in foundations, slabs and stem walls are a sign of damage by movement. These cracks are caused mostly by water damage near the foundation, causing the foundation (stem wall) to sink, ultimately, causing the interior slabs to rise at the fracture points. These fractures and damage can crack tile, and pull up wood flooring and laminate floors. Installing wood flooring, tile or laminate on these floors, will take large grinding and leveling equipment. Concrete Repairman has the latest equipment to level floors and grind your cement slabs for any type of flooring issue.
