Construction Company Compares Different Methods Of Repair For Horizontal Cracks
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., (http://julianconstruction.com/) a construction and foundation repair company in the Los Angeles area, has published an article on how to deal with cracks in walls and floors, and the problems presented by allowing these issues to go unhandled. The company stressed that allowing foundation or wall cracks to remain unhandled can cause serious hazards to a home’s foundation.
When foundation cracks have been identified in a home, epoxy injections are one of the often used remedies. Epoxy is known for its toughness, superior adhesion, low shrinkage and resistance to chemicals and water. After the crack has been filled, large staples are placed across the crack for additional support and stabilization. Also used are carbon-fiber Kevlar strips, which have considerable strength and are easy to work with. The two are used in conjunction to repair horizontal cracks in a wall, which if not handled can lead to the collapse of the wall.
Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction, stated: “Repairing a home starts with recognizing the danger signs. Cracks like these indicate problems in a foundation, and down the road they can increase in size and cause moisture to penetrate into the concrete foundation. Getting a foundation specialist to inspect the area and do any needed concrete foundation repair can prevent serious safety risks.”
