I am finishing my basement and the floor in the basement of my 7 yr old house needed to be redone. Firstly, it sloped up considerably before meeting the foundation wall, and secondly it was crunbling in some places (was not too thick). I had the contracter rip up the floor and he was going to pour an even floor (4 inches?) with rebars. Problem was, when they ripped up the floor, we saw that the foundation walls were not sitting on any footings. (which is probably why the floor sloped up). What are any suggestions of what should properly be done?
