i can’t see/make out good enough, the ground falling in part. sry.
looks like tar/mastic etc on inside block.Gee, did they apply any on the outside which ummm, lol, is most important
my 2 cents on that vertical crack, would certainly note it and explain to whomever that the crack in block basement wall (and those bricks/joints) may or many not widen/get worse in future and may indeed leak and would NOT recommend any interior junk-ball system.
even IF this vertical crack in basement wall was on a GARAGE side, it could still leak etc, we’ve done quite a few.
and if you like, add homeowner should consult SE etc, take yourself off duh hook.
Here’s STEP crack etc in bricks/joints… and the block basement wall has/had VERTICAL crack.
There was NO NEED for any type of piers, underpinning etc HERE.
Homeowner here, did get the BS from a couple INSIDE SYSTEM companies who tried scamming her, told her her house was SETTLING and told her she needed piers and inside system… NOT! Been a long time so I cannot remember the COST of waterproofing we did, I think it was $1,300. I drive by this house pretty often, NO further problems, no settling etc.
Yeah sht sure, there are times when some piers or underpinning is needed, of course!
BUTT, nowhere near what these inside system TERDS tell people!!!
Just because there’s a step crack or vertical etc crack in bricks/joints above ground does NOT automatically mean the dumb az house is SETTLING, which is all I friggin hear.
Sometimes you’ll see something like this, which may extend higher up but was CAUSED by/because the dumb basement wall cracked, use to arrows on right/left side of this photo to see other photos if ya like
