My client closes on Friday, and is concerned about what I believe to be a minor thing. However, it would be a lot better if I knew what was causing the crack in the venner of the front porch dormer pillar of a new construction house. It starts about 8 inches up in the mortar, and follows the mortar, through one brick course, and then stops at the foundation. What could be causing this?
I’m thinking it could be either physical contact or impact; or the weather, since it has been dry and hot for several weeks with little or no rain. Does anybody have any other suggestions?
Now hopefully the pictures upload because this is the first time I have added pictures.
