[ What is Pyrite and how does it affect my home? ]
FTC Construction does not test for pyrite. We offer a removal service only.
Pyrite is a mineral found in backfill gravel. When this gravel comes in contact with humidity and moisture it oxidizes and causes the foundation or slab to heave and/or crack. The visual cues to this are large cracks garage floor/basement floor and foundation cracks caused by the horizontal pressure exerted on the foundation wall.
