How serious are cracks in brick veneer? My husband and I are firs time homebuyers and our inspection report just came back. I sent to to my dad, because he knows a bit more about it than I do, and he seems concerned about the cracks in the brick veneer and says in indicates problems with the foundation.
I have trouble taking it too seriously because I’m from southern Illinois where we have mine subsidence everywhere, so basically all the homes have cracks in the foundation from settling. But we’re now in North Carolina. And all the cracks pointed out are just in the brick veneer (and a few in the concrete driveway, which again, I see everywhere).
Do I really need to hire an engineer to come out and inspect this? Engineers are expensive and our seller is incredibly difficult.
