My house has a rectangular patio delimited by walls, with foundation. The soil under the patio is clay and, after repeated freezing, the patio pulled slightly the corner of the house. There are now two cracks in the foundation in that corner, one on each side, wide. The cracks start in the same point, at the ground level like this: /\. There is no structural safety concern and also the soil under the house is stable.
I would like to know if there is a way to repair that corner so it looks like a new wall? I am not looking for waterproofing solutions.
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much for your advice, I had no idea who to call. I just want to clarify that the cracks are between 1 / 4 " and 1 / 8 " wide.
If we fully repair the concrete wall in that corner as advised it would be one foot on each side (or more if that is needed for the actual repair).
Do we need a permit for this repair? Also what kind of money are we looking at: 5k, 10k, or more?
I appreciate your help.
I just noticed that the my question was displayed without the actual width of the crack: one 1/4 inches at the top and hairline at the bottom.
