My sister just called. Said all of a sudden a “speed bump” appeared in her floor. Home is Slab on grade, about 30 years old in Santa Barbara. She had new tile floor installed about 5 years ago.
Over the last couple months, she said it seemed like when you stepped on the floor, it felt like it was “floating”…then all of a sudden this bump about 5 feet long shows up. There is a crack along the grout line and now a couple tiles have cracked. She says that at the end of the tile floor, where it changes to carpet, you can see between the tile and slab. No water or moisture visible.
I can’t make it down for the next couple weeks. Any ideas? Burst pipe? Failed tension cable?(not sure if it has tension cables) earthquake fault?:mrgreen:
Don’t know if the concrete is raised or just the tile.
Jeff Pope…you da man…Help.
