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.

We are professional concrete floor resurfacing experts and on this project in Gilbert Arizona we were able to totally restore the floor in this commercial building.
To properly resurface a floor the entire surface needs to be prep’d. This involves removing / stripping any paint or coating that may have been applied to the floor previously. Once the entire floor is exposed it can be inspected for any signs of damage or cracks. Any cracking that is found is the stitched to prevent further separation and cracking. After the area has been inspected and repaired as need it can now be checked for any un-level spots that may need attention. Floor leveler is then applied prior to sealing the concrete floor.

We are concrete resurfacing experts and on this project in Gilbert Arizona we gave this warehouse space floor a brand new look. High traffic areas can show signs of wear and can easily be restored with the right equipment and experience.
First the surface of the concrete floor needs to be cleaned and prep’d by grinding the surface to expose the concrete. This will remove any surface marks and dirt and will expose the raw concrete and open the floor’s pores so that the floor can then be finished.
After the floor has be prep’d we then apply a primer to seal the floor to prevent damage from appearing in the future. Once the primer is cured we can then seal the floor giving it an attractive and low maintenance appearance.
