Watch the movie, " The Red Pill", then ask the shelter people how many homes they have for abused men?

Report back please.

The house will be open to anyone who needs shelter from abuse or sex trafficking.

We have had two different contractors look at it and give two completely different plans for repairing it. Thats the reason for this post to see what other folks have to say

Ah, good (I actually suspected it was ). Detroit is built on the silted clays of the confluence of the Detroit, Rouge, St Clair and Huron Rivers.

So you get a lot of hydraulic action.

The backfill when that place was built was what was dug out - no stone or sand. No exterior weep tile. So it heaved.

And it's been doing it a long time.

My job is remodeling and repairing houses. Thats what i do for a living.
I dont have much experience rebuilding foundations. Thats why we have bids from other contractors. We have also subbed out the plumbing and electrical.
I apologize for the attitude.

Re: Foundation Wall Cracked And Leaning Inward.


8" concrete blocks make a chitty foundation wall in my opinion even with reinforcing and the cores filled...too many joints and hydrostatic pressure almost guarantee a failure at some point unless like Small town pointed out you provide for drainage to get the water away....wet earth is heavy and fluid and moves chit....ask anyone in California
