Crushed footer pads


Recommended Posts

These pics show failed footer pads. The soils in this area can be very high in alkali content. I believe that this damage is due to the incorrect type of portland cement used in the concrete or possibly incorrect cement/water ratio although the concrete stem wall is in relatively good shape. Any comments? Ed
