08 Jun Reinforce Your Concrete with Rebar
This is what happens when concrete is not reinforced with rebar.
This is in a development built in the 1990’s, and I have inspected several of the homes, and they always have porch cracks or have sunken. This is due to poor compaction of soil, lack of steel reinforcement bars, or a combination of both. An added expansion joint in this area may have helped.
The crack was repaired, but the low step can be tripped upon, and to repair it properly would require removal of this section, and pouring concrete anew. A large job obviously.
So don’t be ridiculous, call Meticulous 631 902 6761. www.meticuloushomeinspection.com
