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 require 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.
