Don't you just wonder what the heck happens to me when I slack off and don't post for months?
After my previous post I was shocked to find a crack in the wall of my brand new foundation, so I couldn't post while I cried.
Many phone calls and meetings later, it is determined to be a stress crack and not a pressure crack.
Thank God! The mason came back out and put hydraulic cement on the inside and top of the crack.
First he ground out a v shape and then filled it. I wanted epoxy in there because I read it actually bonds the wall where ground shifting can knock out the hydraulic cement. I hope the heck this never happens.
On the outside, the excavator is going to come back out (for free) and dig the backfill our so I can put epoxy in the crack on the exterior wall.
Winter here now, so may be a while.
A rep from the concrete company came out also. I have heard so many things about the reasons this happened and all of the many repairs that can be done. Let's just hope all is well.
I am glad it is not from the ground up from footing problems or ground shifting as in pressure cracks.
Then I had the walkout wall framed and the foundation capped off for winter, was rear ended in my truck, holidays, cleaning the house, you know, stuff. lol
