So I inspected a 66 yr old home today here in the high desert in Central Oregon. Somebody did some kind of skim coat to the foundation. In the crawl I only found one “larger” flaring crack, roughly 3/16 wide at the top. So i believe the foundation may have had some spalling. Hoever i have no way to verify that.
Okay finally the question, The west side of the house that gets all the afternoon sun showed these small cracks. I tapped on it in many places with a piece of metal and it didn’t sound weird or hollow it actually sounded quite solid…
Any ideas what created these cracks? Did whatever product they used dry to quick? Was it to thick? I really have a limited knowledge on concrete repairs.
Just as a “fun extra” since you read this far, I’m pretty sure concrete products are not an approved repair to rotten wood siding. Also found on the same house.
