Next Project? Foundation Repair


Well, here goes nothing. I have a few cracks and corner damage to the foundation of my home. I am hoping that I can repair them myself, but if not I was hoping someone could point me in a good direction as far as how expensive a repair it would be if I had an outside contractor do it.

Here's some photos:











Is this something I can do myself? I've heard of concretelike epoxy that can repair some foundation work, but do these repairs fit the bill? Thanks for any advice.

$2500, most can be done your self. The large crack should have a membrane across it and it is not something you can do your self. Cost $500-$1500

Thanks Bob, for the reply. I'm fortunate to have a very handy brother-in-law who has worled construction most of his adult life. I think he is going to do what I cannot.

By the large crack, do you mean the long, thin one in the 1st photo or the shorter, wider one on the one corner?
