RE: old foundation block deterioration

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is the chemical reaction that is causing this problem?  What can be done to prevent further deterioration, if anything?  What is different about today's blocks that might better prevent this from happening?  Those types of questions so that I can better educate myself and make appropriate recommendations.

Subject: old foundation block deterioration
I'm searching for technical information on deterioration of old cinder(or cement) block foundation walls about 50 years old, but I'm not having much luck searching on the web.

Not sure what you mean by ?technical information on deterioration.? Please clarify.
