Before you have any major remodeling project or renovations done to your home you will want to know everything you can about the project.
Hiring the right contractors is important and you want to make sure they are skilled, qualified and have common sense.
Recently we had a customer that had some plumbing work done to their home. On this particular project a new drain had to be installed. In order to do this the plumber needed to cut a path in the floor in order to install the pipes. This involved cutting into the floor in order to install the new pipes.
Sadly this contractor knew little about foundations and cut into a post tension foundation which is the biggest mistake you can make. This could not of been easy, concrete saws are powerful and designed to cut concrete not steel cables.
Post tension foundations have steel cables in them to provide structural integrity and are there for a reason. This contractor should of checked for any stamps before trying to cut into the foundation.
I previewed a property for sale in Glendale and noticed a few floor tiles in the middle of living room were cracked and one was popped. I removed the carpet in the next room to see the foundation and saw a visible crack that was about 0.5 inches wide. Is this a serious problem?
It should be a concern and is not normal. With this type of foundation problem the damage will only continue to spread and get worse. Depending on the extent of damage to the home it could be very costly to repair. If you are considering buying the property you may very well want to have the entire property inspected by an experienced contractor that can tell you what you are looking at in way of total damage and what may need to be done to restore the foundation and flooring in the home you are considering buying.
If you are willing to move forward with the purchase, getting a professional inspection and estimate from a foundation expert will be very helpful in negotiating the final sale price and will save you money having the repairs done by a professional licensed contractor that is an expert in foundation repair.

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.

Taking on a restoration project has its surprises especially when it comes to having to fix and repair cracks in your concrete floors of the home. This home renovation in Gilbert Arizona is a perfect example on how the flooring the home could be saved and restored.
The flooring was cracked in a few areas and was the result of a foundation issue that needed to be taken care of. After the work had been completed we were able to repair the damage to the floors inside the home.
Slab Stitching is the process of just that, stitching your floor back together. Parallel cuts are made in to the concrete along the length of the crack. Metal re-enforcement bars are placed in the cuts and then filled.
These stitches are put in place to prevent the crack from coming back. The steel bars hold the floor together and in place.
Once all the stitches are in place we can now patch the crack in the floor and repair the damage.

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.
