Pyrrhotite Problems

If pyrite or pyrrhotite are present in the rocks underneath buildings, the swelling can push on the foundation, walls, and basement floor of the building, causing cracks and other structural damage. In some cases, groundwater can then transport sulfates into the cracked foundation, causing further damage.

Crumbling Foundations

Presence of pyrrhotite in the concrete combined with moisture and oxygen. Critical element is moisture and the interaction of pyrrhotite with moisture and oxygen. Homes with small amounts of pyrrhotite (less than 0.3%) still can experience crumbling foundations.
