What is causing that crack in the building? How can you repair it? Building foundations provide structural support to buildings but are often damaged and rendered nearly useless by many natural events (hurricanes, drought, excessive rain, etc.). Most foundations can be repaired and returned to their original load capacity, but each foundation damage case can present unique challenges depending on the extent of damage, the foundation material used, the foundation depth in the ground, and the loads being carried by the foundation. In this interactive online course, we will discuss different types of building foundations and several types of causes of foundation failures. We will also cover methods for foundation repair, as well as new materials and technologies used in repair.

The instructor did an outstanding job conveying the systems and methods for recognizing and repairing foundation issues. This is one of the best courses I've had with RedVector.
