    My neighbor's subcontractor just sent a horizontal rebar from his concrete retaining wall all the way through our foundation. It's sticking out into our basement. What is the best way to deal with this problem and maintain the integrity of our 100+ year-old foundation? My neighbor suggested...

    Hey all. I am adding some supports in my basement/crawlspace in preparation for an attic conversion project upstairs. The engineer is having me add four posts (either PT 6x6 or permanent steel columns - my choice) with 24x24x10 footings. This will be inspected, so what does code call for in...

    I have a bunch of fruit trees built up on mounds. Here in rainy south Florida you have to get the tree roots up out of the summer wet for the tree to survive. I have the beds built inside hexagons built from 2" x 8"s. The hexagons are 71" sides and about 12' major diameter. The deck screws...

    In northern Maine, where I live, people say they set up rebar in their poured concrete foundation walls by setting up four horizontal rows of rebar, spaced about 2' apart, inside the forms, above the footings.

    My house is a bungalow built in 1958. One of the foundation walls in the basement was bowed in slightly. It was nothing new, it had been like that for years and I have been monitoring it closely the last two years and it has not moved any further. A professional evaluated it and said it has...

    I'm going to pour a concrete slab 10' X 15'. Its purpose is to provide a secure pad for a rectangular shaped 3000 pound water boiler that will be holding 400 gallons of water(3,340 lbs) max. while boiling it off. The question has to do with thickness of the pour, rebar size and lay pattern...

    I've got a concrete stoop that has sunk several inches since it was installed back in the 1950's. I've heard about using a mud jack, but think the best route is to remove/replace. A handyman I've considered hiring said he would attach a new stoop to my house foundation with rebar so that...
