I build a few homes a year, but I’m not a civil engineer. I always get a bore sample and soil analysis done. Based on that I make a decision on which to use. As one poster said

$2.60/ft2, but that's an entire home, new construction. With that being said, you need an energy survey. They check ducts, infared images of ceilings, etc. This tells you where you are loosing air, which is the main factor in keeping your home cool. Tighter the structure, lower the cooling needs. Ta...

Straight water is the best unless you have serious staining. But if you do go the muriatic acid route, use an all plastic garden sprayer as it will eat anything metal as already stated. One or two cups per gallon of H2O is plenty. Let it soak 15 min, then spray it with baking soda to neutralize (1/2...

Is crack thicker than a dime? That's the rough rule of thumb to determine if the crack is truly a concern. All slabs will crack, it's the amount of movement/separation that's the concern.
Lots of ways to fix it if it's truly a problem. Could be as simple as watering the soil around slab to mainta...
