Our house is about 18 years old, and we bought it 6 years ago. We had our home inspected before buying, and everything passed. Shortly after buying, we noticed some cracks under a couple of windows, and a small crack on the concrete base. Thing is, we can’t recall if these cracks were there during the home inspection, or if they’ve been there for the past 4 or 5 years.
We filled the cracks in a few years ago, as they run in a stair step fashion within the mortar only - none of the bricks themselves are cracked, and we’ve never had any water problems. We didn’t really think too much of it until we saw the smaller crack about the basement window as well:
And this window is at the back of the house:
Do we need to call a SE or is this just the way that the house has settled since there are no cracked bricks?
Thanks for any responses, they will be greatly appreciated.
