Video Playlist about: Foundation Repair in Arizona
I was asked to come by this home and this tile is caving upwards and a lot of people will assume that there’s a crack in the floor there. May be and there may not be. However, water vapor transmission comes up through the floor, because of the water being held near the perimeter foundation. We’ll go outside here in a moment. The temperature conditions underneath this slab and the slab itself. The tile is like 3/8 inch thick tile. The atmospheric conditions here in the atmosphere are warmer than it is in the slab and underneath the slab. So the tile starts to elongate. When the tile starts to elongate in a bottleneck area, where this transition is, over here the tile on this side is a little bit more forceful. The tile on that side has a little bit more force, and where they meet in the middle, is where this moisture underneath this slab is, laminated the tile from its thin set on the floor. The humidity difference has caused the atmospheric conditions to warm up the tile. The tile then starts getting more active and starts expanding. This is what we’re seeing. It’s expanding and coming up. If you’ve lived in Arizona long enough you’ll see sidewalks look like a teepee. That’s the same thing on a sidewalk, except here on an interior floor, it’s happening with the thin tile. The temperature of the tile is warmer than the slab. The substrate, that’s below it.
Going outside. I was on the other side of the AC over there. I’ve already walked this property. I’m recommending six inch aluminum seamless rain gutters on the side of this house with the brackets to hold that gutter out out level and the downspout just on the other side of that fence. A little bit more dirt grading on the other side in the front, to allow for that water to flow away. Six-inch gutter with 6-inch downspout with a four foot six inch downspout extension and dirt grading on this side. Remove this water from this area that is being pounded and forced up against this house. Water vapor is going underneath this shallow foundation post tension. This foundation is only 12 inches tall. It’s easy for moisture to go through then because of the other evidence in the hallway just above the area where we were. There’s a crack in the ceiling, starting a little bit of stress. There’s likely a vertical break in this foundation here. So when you hold this, the hydraulic static pressure is forcing that moisture through to the inside of the floor evaporating or humidity up delaminating the tile, and you know the rest of that story.
This foundation goes to this inside corner and then comes back out this section of the home can move independently then this section of the home. From this area through the house all the way to the front door. This section can move and the front section can move independently, we need to control that movement. What’s causing the movement, water, water saturation near shallow foundations. This is a post tension only 12 inches, improving dirt grade where rain gutters can’t be established. Just improving the dirt grade, moving the decorative rocks back, importing screen, classified, topsoil, really fine soils, and compacting that into place. You don’t want to come up to encroach to much more than three inches from the drip on the side of this stucco, and slope it out three to four feet. Then put the decorative rocks back.
Here the dirt grade could be improved. You can remove some of this dirt, not rocks, but the dirt. You can use this dirt to put back there where we just were. Increasing this slope here to force whatever atmospheric rain would be landing here would be an improvement. However the biggest portion is going to be controlling this water coming off of this roof. If you calculate the length and width and depth of one-inch rain on top of this roof. And then you consolidate it and force it near a 12 inch post tension foundation, you’re going to get moisture in the soil that’s holding up the vertical load being applied down to it but gravity. Six inch aluminum seamless rain gutters is a must for this home. Going into the garage.
On my way to the garage I forgot about this vertical break in the foundation. This is what I look for, vertical breaks in a monolithic foundation. Meaning monolithic, the foundation perimeter and interior floor are all poured in one piece, monolithic. So when I see a break here, there’s a break on the interior floor when you see a break, the crack is bigger at the top than it is at the bottom. That means it’s opening at the top, so one side, this side, is moving down. And we see there is moisture. This separation if this is a construction joint. It’s always going to move independently. The house moves differently than this gait section here. if you put a rigid material here, it’s going to continue to break open. Just a cheap, inexpensive caulking that has elasticity to move back and forth, control the water.
Going around the corner. So this section of the garage here. Another gutter, bring this gutter around and put it just to that sidewalk right there, Just so it has an opportunity to come down and sit right there. You can put it on the other side, bring it around and set it right there. It gives it the mobility and flow to move away from the home. Other evidence is spalling. The degradation of the surface of concrete whether it’s horizontal or vertical. The efflorescence salt deposit chews into the surface of the concrete deteriorating, causing spalling and then you see these aggregates. A crack in a slab. If you see a crack put one foot on one side, one on the other and point at a ninety degree angle to where the issue is going to be, there is too much water over here that’s the driveway.
Coming into the interior floor of the garage post-tension. This slab has darkened areas in this crack. This is evidence of moisture, darkness inside of slabs underneath slabs will show darkness. Water vapor transmission. This would be a great example of what is going on on the interior of the floor where we started this video. There’s enough water vapor here that’s causing this staining and efflorescence salt is migrating up through. So four pounds or higher of water vapor. If this floor had tile on it, there would be delamination from this floor. Same thing is happening on the interior floor. So if you have cracks in the floors you look up and see if there’s any cracks in the ceiling in the drywall. There is. So with these suggestions and expressions that this home is giving, it all comes back to control the water. Termites need moisture in the soil to tunnel. This is a termite tube, but can’t tell, I’m not a termite guy. I know what termite tubes look like, cuz I’ve had them. Termites need moisture in the soil to tunnel. We got another crack here. One foot on one side, one on the other, in this case my two fingers. Boom that’s where the moisture is, that’s where the termites are. That’s where this is coming down. Need rain gutters. Control the water, you will control termites, you will control settlement. This side of the garage has a crack at the weakest link, which are doorways, windows and thresholds. So if this is moving down, we’re gonna see a triangulated crack right here, and this with the termites, it’s undisputable, it is moisture.
And this is a side I was talking about. About bringing these gutters out. Six inch aluminum seamless with the bracket to hold it out away from that fascia so it’s level on top and you can just bring it on the other side. Put another gutter out here – two down barrels, a double barrel. It’s a pretty good size roof, and then landscape this area so there’s this little swell that runs through here, french drain if you will.
This concludes my evaluation of this home. For more information, watch my videos, Concrete Repairman LLC on Youtube.
Thanks for watching and have a great day!

Foundation Repair Chandler AZ – Signs of Foundation Problems – Foundation Warning Signs
May 16, 2018James came out to my home and was able to pretty quickly identify my problem. He did a full inspection, inside and outside. He was able to identify and show me where these area are and explain each of them, why they matter and what else could stem from them. He was able to provide me with a step by step plan of what I need to do as well as giving me a referral. His solution was not to fix what was cosmetically wrong but rather identify the problem and fix the problem. Once that has been completed we can move forward with a much lower cost option (not using piers or pillars) that is just as effective. I feel empowered and very knowledgeable about our foundation problems. He didn’t try to sell me anything or offer me a buy now gimmick for a discount (As one well known company in the valley does. You feel so pressured to make a very big decision when this happens) . He let me know at the very end how his services could help and when the time to help would be (after we have identified the problem and fixed it). He was very friendly. Family own and ran company. He’s third generation and 35+ years. He not only has expertise in AZ foundation issues but is from Nebraska and has a very well rounded knowledge of Soil and foundation issues. Thank you so much James for getting us started and saving us a ridiculous amount of money!Jun 10, 2018We are very happy with the work done by Concrete Repairman. Over the years water accumulated near our foundation from rain, watering plants, or draining the swamp cooler and A/C discharge. This moisture caused the rebar within our stem wall to rust and expand resulting in long horizontal cracks and the stem wall disintegrating at two corners. To repair this requires more than a cosmetic patch job. James and his crew did a beautiful job identifying and replacing the damaged rebar, repairing the vertical concrete and insuring the structural integrity of the stem wall. The crew was punctual and informative. We were pleased with the quality of work and the guys did a great job cleaning up afterwards.Jun 12, 2018Had the foundation repair completed in March. Later, I noticed a small low line (depression) close to the foundation. Once I notified the company of this, they quickly responded, not only fixing the problem to perfection, but also did a little grading repair to an area that was outside their responsibility. Later it was brought to my attention that the grading problem may have existed before the foundation work was done. Their workmanship is far beyond expectation. I appreciate their quick response and willingness to do more than was asked.Jun 28, 2018Great company! We were worried we had a foundation problem so we called for an evaluation. They couldn’t find anything wrong but taught us a ton about signs to watch for and didn’t charge us a dime. If I ever DO have a foundation problem I know exactly who to call. Awesome!
Foundation repair of stem wall repair, foundation cracks should be repair by highly skilled craftsmen, like James Belville at Concrete Repairman LLC in Tempe Arizona.
The process of heave (sagging of the concrete slab) can be avoided with proper floor leveling. It is an ongoing task that is vital to the lifespan of a Tempe home.
Have you ever heard the expression “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? This is very true when it comes to heave. A little knowledge about the foundation will go a long way in reducing the chances of damage to the structure. Even small cracks in concrete can lead to structural problems later on if left unnoticed. More about Stem Wall Repair.
Proper maintenance of the house is also a must. Depending on where the crack is and how large it is, the structure may need floor leveling. Flooring and drywall should also be checked regularly to ensure that the moisture content does not accumulate too much.
If the area is located near the property line, then it is best to remove any existing roof. In case the cracked part of the slab is directly above the roof, the roof might have to be replaced because of the weight and pressure it is facing. This can be a very expensive project and one that should not be left until the foundation cracking is severe.
Experts are always willing to offer sound advice, but in the absence of a trained professional or trained inspection team, the homeowner is in charge of the situation. There are a number of steps to take in order to achieve perfect floor cracking and cracked concrete foundation floor repairs.
One of the most important things to consider is the type of material being used for the home foundation crack repair. Cracks can occur in a wide variety of materials from concrete and brick to wood and tile. To determine which material the home needs to be repaired with, a visual inspection can be useful in determining the potential severity of the problem. Call 602-418-2970.
A thorough foundation inspection will also help the homeowner to determine what type of sound work would be required to fix the foundation problems. Heave should be checked on a daily basis as this is the only way to spot a possible foundation problem. If necessary, the homeowner can call an expert team and they can inspect the site on an ongoing basis. It is important to know that several professional teams will do a complete visual examination of the home’s, foundation so if a problem is spotted, the need for more repair work can be identified early.
Regardless of the level of concern, the home must be leveled out, especially if the crack is caused by an accumulation of pressure, a flat surface, or other factors. Proper floor leveling is the key to preventing the future problems that come with heave.

Concrete Repairman LLC Reviews
WOW! I feel like i was just on an episode of The Lone Ranger as my wife and I watched Jim and Bryan drive away into the sunset! We are renters and stood in for the landlord who is selling the home we rent(that has cracks in the foundation). Jim is incredibly knowledgeable man!! First and foremost he has PASSION. Broken down it spells PASS I ON! Jim shares his knowledge and then some; A walking encyclopedia if you will. He is into fixing the problem and not putting a band aid on it. He was incredibly thorough and knows his stuff. He was upfront about the issues, was not overbearing, and if I ever needed a concrete dude, Jim would be the person I’d call!! 6 out of 5 stars.! Thank you Jim and Bryan!
I found a small hairline crack in the foundation of my home that was for sale. I called Concrete Repairman for an estimate. They came out the next day. James examined the area fully and assured me that it was not a problem. He is extremely knowledgeable and gave me a thorough explanation as to what was taking place with my home. He recommended rain gutters to make sure the moisture stays away from the foundation of the house. He then proceeded to examine the rest of the house and answered any questions I had in detail. I would certainly recommend this company if have any questions or needs regarding concrete repair at your home.
James was outstanding! He spent time educating me on the needed repairs and going over what it was going to take to fix my foundation problem. He is very professional and interested in actually helping his clients. He has videos to support his over 30 years of experience and knows how to do the job right. Thanks for your services!!
I highly recommend James and his crew for any concrete job!!! He and his workers are highly skilled, extremely thorough, knowlegeable and polite. I had a stem wall repair job that I’d been putting off for far too long. I sought other bids but James’ was more detailed (by far), priced competitively and provided by James himself—He gave me a complete rundown of the process and the products he would use as well as the timeframe and the warranty he would provide. I accepted his bid on the spot and scheduled the work for the following week. The job was completed in the timeframe discussed and the results were far beyond my expectations. The house, courtyard, landscaping, sidewalk, yard and street were left cleaner than they found it. They even polished my stained concrete courtyard which was in no way a part of the job!!!! They went above and beyond and I am so grateful for that. Call James if you want the best team for your job!!!

James came to our home and did an entire inspection inside and out. He explained everything in great detail and in layman’s terms. James is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his work. He really took the time explain everything to me and answered all my questions. 5 stars is not enough. Thank you!
James came out to evaluate my property. I was concerned with some cracks and spalling. He went over entire perimeter of property and was able to translate what was happening into layman terms. He provided suggestions on how I can be proactive to prevent any issues in the future. He is compassionate about what he does and am very appreciative of his time. Thanks James. Stay groovy!
I wish every experience with a business could be like my experience with Jim of Concrete Repairman. House had stem wall foundation damage. After it was repaired, it looked brand new. My husband and I were impressed- amazed at how great it looked! Price was reasonable and work was completed as scheduled. Thanks to Jim and his team! Sue
James just left my home. He was able to determine that a leak in a closet was not from the foundation but the roof. He inspected the entire house and pointed out different things I could do to alleviate any future foundation issues. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The inspection was free and there was no high pressure selling to get any of the issues repaired. I would highly recommend James as honest and a leader in his field.
EXCELLENT!! Sometimes it is difficult to find someone that will give you an honest estimate and do quality work. However, James is the exception! He viewed our home, told us the things we could do on our own to make it better. He could have easily kept the knowledge to himself, because doing so took money out of his pocket. But he cared enough about his craft and us as a customer/homeowner to tell us the truth. Now, that’s someone that truly cares about what he does and his customer. Great guy and I would recommend him any day!! Thanks!
Owner is a wonderful individual. I thought I had a post-tension foundation problem and so I asked James come evaluate my home/foundation. Extremely pleasant and knowledgeable individual. He spent over 2hrs inspecting and assessing every structural aspect of my home. In the end, I was told I did not need his services. He then told me very clearly the types of things I needed do going forward, to hopefully avoid needing his services in the future. IMO, it is very rare to find a tradesman that will actually tell you that you don’t need to do any work with them. That being said, should the need for foundation work come up in the future, you can bet James will be my first call!!
I called James at The Concrete Repairman” when I had a flooring issue that I suspected might be tied to my slab. He was quick to respond, even quicker to identify the issue and put me at ease in pursuing my repair with confidence. He’s a true professional with great customer service – make him your first call if you have questions about your slab or any concrete!”
I did a search on foundation issues and found James info and videos. I was concerned about the different cracks that keep showing up in our house. I was able to schedule for him to come out in a few days, but I called back to ask if there was anyway he could make it out today, and he worked me in! I was thankful to get an understanding of what is going on with our house and a plan going forward to fix the issues and stop further damage from happening. Thank you James!
I have a new home which was built this year (2019) with a post tensioned slab. The ground under the slab is shrinking, so I called James after reading all the valuable information on his website. He promptly arrived at the appointed time and thoughly inspected, evaluated, and took pictures of the issues with the foundation. He explained all the issues and patiently made sure I understood the issues and thier remedies. He did this knowing that he would not benift financially because the house is under warranty with the builder, and I will not be able to hire who I want to do the work. He is truly a gem in the industry and I wholeheartedly recommend him.
Outstanding! Never have I experienced such attention to detail and follow through as planned! I was in need of stem wall repair, spalling, horizontal cracking, etc… James came to assess and walked the entire home, explaining in detail what needed to be done and related details. His experience with this work was quite evident. He answered questions and took video of the work needed. Like clock work, Frank and Frank arrived to perform the planned work as planned and on time each day, answered any related questions I may have had. Tiffany provided invoices promptly which was also greatly appreciated. The work itself was professional and thorough. James returns phone calls with any question or concern throughout. I couldn’t be more impressed and pleased. Thank you all!
