Problem, local church went through flood, building set on fieldstone foundation, field trip discovered no apparent shifting or settlement of existing foundation, but some areas of foundation appear to be missing alot of mortar. Checked all of the walls in the building and appear to be fairly plumb. What is the best way to repair the existing foundation? I thought about placing forms and filling with self consolidated concrete or mortar, which eventually could "pop-out" or just have re-pointed? Of course the building could be jacked and place a new foundation, but that must be quite expensive. PCC may be the better answer for future flooding problems.Thanks for any help.
