Found a crack in the wall today right underneath one of the downstairs windows. This window was in the walkout basement portion of the home and the window was about 3 1/2 - 4 feet high. The crack runs down from the bottom of the window to the floor and although noticable, wasn’t very wide. No such cracks were found anywhere else in the home or on this particular wall. Here’s the problem, there was a negative grade found in the landscape right outside of the window in question (underneath a deck/balcony) and the ground outside at the wall was very wet.
My first reaction, since this was the crack in the wall, was that it was minor. Then I started mulling it over and started to wonder.
I’ve never posted a picture before but I’ll give it a shot.
