Stabilization and horizontal cracking in glazed tile foundation
The walls required extensive grinding due to the unevenness of the Glazed Tile. Significant stabilization concerns lead to tightened strap installation spacing of 32” on center. Also with large span of window opening, horizontal straps were installed to carry load to vertical straps placed on each side of window.
Due to the amount of grinding on glazed tile, an additional Hepa vacuum was used to control dust level. Extra epoxy was also used for evening the grinded area allowing a smooth painted completed project.
