Fix Pyrrhotite Foundation Issues
Thousands of homes, duplexes and apartment buildings in northern and eastern Connecticut and lower parts of Massachusetts face crumbling and deteriorating basement walls due to foundations made of concrete aggregate material containing pyrrhotite, an iron sulfide mineral.
The mineral destroys foundations and causes serious structural problems. This is because of a chemical reaction that occurs when pyrrhotite is exposed to oxygen and water, causing swelling, cracking, and flaking of the concrete, ultimately resulting in crumbling foundation walls. The only permanent remedy is to completely replace the foundation.
Permanently Correct Water Problems
Many older homes were simply built too low. No matter how many exterior drainage systems you install, the long-lasting way to fix the problem permanently is to elevate your home, extend your foundation, and slope the backfill away from the house.
