This particular project is a perfect example as to why it is important to have an engineer out prior to hiring a contractor to correct foundation concerns.  Some contractors have a one size fits all approach when it comes to foundation cracks, which can be quite costly.

As we mentioned in a recent post, not all cracking foundations requirecracking foundations an elaborate fix.  This was the case with this West Chester Ohio home.  After the engineer reviewed the project, he determined that a set of staple dowels and crack injections would be sufficient.   Hughes Construction Company implemented the suggestions as recommended by the designing engineer of Buyers Protection Group.  As a result the home owner will be able to rest easy knowing this vertical crack is now stable.
