Topic: Dear friends In RCC roof of my home, there are cracks visible in soffit of slab

Dear friends In RCC roof of my home, there are cracks visible in soffit of slab almost in all rooms which are 12'x13'and 12'x14'.There are no beams. The cracks are diagonally approaching from center of slab towards walls. Construction is 4-5 years old. I want to strenthen slab by putting ISMB under soffit of slab but its appearance may not be pleasant. May I know from Forum to guide me to follow correct procedure to strenthen slab. can I construct first floor after this process. please express your veiws. thanks Sunil Rathi

Dear sunil rathi

            There are so many causes of cracks in the slab such as less reinforcement used in the RCC slab, deffective or under specification materials, less curing, salty water and deffective laying i.e.poor workmanship. From the contents of sent by you, you should contact any structural engineer who can give abetter reamedy after site inspection. I think you should go for guniting to repair the cracks. You may take help from the website gharexpert in the construction section from the article repair of cracks.

Cracks in diagonal format are very dangerous as the may result in the slab collapse thus i would suggest to just replace the slab using rebarring procedure it may be costly but as you have not constructed the upper floor it is quiet opossible and will be long term sollution and also life saving.
