Crack in Concrete/Engineered floor


The 1/16" crack isn't the main issue. The main issue is the "drop" in the slab. Go ahead with your plan and see what happens, those building inspector guys always know what's best.

I'm just curious tho about your soil conditions. Where are you? Not Texas I hope!!!

Crack in Concrete/Engineered floor


We sealed up the crack and used a little bit of the cement to level it off....enough so that there were no drops/dips more than about 1/16" which is within the specs of manufacturer....Still waiting for the stuff to dry, but we should have all the flooring down by the end of the weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.

Oh, and no, we aren't in texas. We're in Kentucky. I would say our conditions right now are just average....we had a bit of rain a while back, but not much since then....
