The single-family residential structure was originally constructed in 1985. Approximately 4 years ago, foundation repairs were performed by a local company. Recently, the homeowner had noticed the worsening of existing foundation cracks and the formation of new ones. RB Engineering was asked to determine the general condition of the foundation and recommend repairs.
RB Engineering inspected the structure, noting that the concrete driveway contained severe cracks as a result of slab settlement and sloped toward the front corner of the left foundation wall. The exterior foundation wall contained several exterior foundation cracks.
RB Engineering recommended a structural repair utilizing underground helical piers to stabilize the foundation movement and to address the cause of the foundation cracking. RB Engineering also suggested the demolition and re-pouring of the cracked concrete driveway. RB Engineering was able to provide the homeowner with a high quality referral to a local foundation repair company and work commenced to address foundation issues per our report.
