Our field technicians are experts at repairing and restoring foundations of all types and on this job we discovered that some of the damage had be caused by another contractor that failed to realize it was a post tension foundation.
A post tension foundation has steel cables in the concrete to provide additional strength to the pad. In this case a previous contractor had cut into the foundation and managed to break some of the cables that were in the foundation.
We were able to repair the damage and patched the damaged areas along the foundation. Once that was done we waterproofed and painted foundation and restored the landscaping.

If you have ever wondered what is inside a home’s Stem Wall this is your chance. Recently we did a foundation repair in Gilbert Arizona that was a good opportunity to show and explain the importance of maintaining your home’s foundation. Here are a few photos that show you what is actually inside a stem wall.
On this job we had to remove more than usual due to the extent of the damage we found on the properties foundation.
In this photo you can see we had to expose the oxidized rebar the entire length of the wall and you can see how rusted the rebar inside the stem wall is. These 2 bars are / were originally 1/2 inch in diameter. The reason for these 2 steel bars inside your stem wall are to add strength to the concrete. Without them the concrete would simply crack and fall away. If your stem wall is not properly sealed water will seep in and attack these steel bars and cause them to rust. When this happens they begin to expand and push out forcing the concrete to give and start cracking. If you notice cracks in your foundation you could have the same thing going in inside your stem wall.
