Hello, first time post here.
Just purchased my first home in Southern Ontario in a hot real estate market. Unfortunately, could not do a home inspection in this market due to the crazy high bidding wars.
In any case, I have a home that has basement slab cracks that look abnormal to me. There are also dried water marks, which I never noticed before because the previous owner had covered it with rugs. Images can be found here: Basement Water Marks and Cracks - Album on Imgur
You can see the displacement from the leveler, the slab is not completely flat. In addition, the water marks to me suggests a high water table causing hydro static pressure. I do not see any water marks on the walls, or any signs of mold. I also called the previous owner, and she told me that out of the 5 years shes lived there, there hasn’t been a basement flood (not sure if I believe her though).
Is this something to be concerned about? The cracks definitely are not hairline.
