Buckling floor after foundation repair

rachel77February 10, 2011

We have a 1952 pier and beam house. Due to very old termite damage, we had to have our bathroom floor raised. The tile in the bathroom (no big loss there) buckled, but the concrete (seems very thick) underneath the tile split and buckled, too. How on earth do I fix a huge crack like this? Can I chisel the concrete level and fill it in with more? Or is it better left to professionals? Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

You probably have about 3" of concrete sand mix under the tile. The best option would be to remove the concrete and then raise the floor level using plywood, hardie board and tile. If height is not a problem and the floor is now stable you could get by using a floor leveler and then thinsetting the new tile over the old tile.
