What the heck is this? I don’t see many brick foundations. This is an older home, would guess built in the 20’s or 30’s. Foundation looked fine except for this one section of 8-10 feet. The mortar joints look as if some mortar was missing but none was found at the base of the wall. Quality of work didn’t look as good as the rest of the foundation either. I am not sure what to think on this one.
This is the wall next to it. As you can see it looks fine.
My best guess is water seepage that has caused this. The grade is higher than the crawl space so this "seems" to make sense to me. Except the rest of the wall looks fine.
I am going to write it up and let the buyer decide if he/she wants further inspections. Not really sure what to write either. But my curiosity is killing me! Would appreciate any input.
