I apologize in advance if this posting seems a little out of place.
Most of the info. available on the Web re: foundation crack repair seems to involve basement areas, but I am trying to find out whether hairline cracks that appear to start below grade with a slab-on-grade foundation need to be grouted. The moisture concerns raised seem to focus again on basement areas. Should I be concerned about having these below grade cracks repaired, as well as those above grade? Isn't it possible that the foundation walls are insulated or have a moisture barrier system of some type? Or should the cracks be repaired for other concerns besides moisture?
Is there any way that I could take care of this myself, although without a bulldozer, I'm not sure that I could. ![icon_eek.gif](upload://yuxgmvDDEGIQPAyP9sRnK0D0CCY.gif)
