Building Foundation Crack Repairs

Simply defined, foundation can be said to be the platform or interface between any building structure and the earth. The chief function of the foundation is its capacity to transfer worst load case scenario from the structure to the soil, in an adequate way. As the worst load case scenario can be a combined effect of the building’s own weight, weight of inhabitants and other objects, designing a robust foundation is mission critical as without its presence, a structure can be pretty dangerous to be in.
