Hope someone can help. This house was built in 2002. It's on a slab. There are no problems on inside walls. I inspected this home in April 2002 for the new buyer. I took a picture of this area then, and I know that this crack was not present in April. Now the owner is moving and the potential new buyers hired another inspector. He found this crack and states that it will cost $2500.00 to repair. The potential new buyer is a RA and she hired her own inspector. He says that this is a serious problem. We had lots of rain in the last months due to hurricanes and all. This crack is on a side wall and runs about 1/3 of the wall, fairly straight up and down. The crack is 1/16" Does anyone have any thoughts on the severity and maybe an estimate for repairs.
