I inspected a 8 yr old home that the foundation had apx 3/4 horizontal cracking for apx 4’ on side and 4’ on back wall with apx a 3/8" deflection, with poor drainage in both areas, additionally this area is known for soil problems
I recommended futhur evaluation by a structural engineer
Listing agent and Home seller hires local HI [ small town] and local Hi pulls int carpet back
and determines and puts in writing, since slab is not cracked its no problem, that type of cracking is normal due to pouring the foundation in 2 different pours
The buyer accepts HI 2 opinion ,
Did I overreact or is HI 2 correct???
