Guys-I am inspecting a new home next week with horizontal cracks in brick mortar. Seems to be a complaint of several H/O in area. Any thoughts besides foundation movement?-Don-Miceli Home inspections Denver
If no vertical displacement is present and the cracks are small it could be nothing more than thermal expansion cracking.
Definitely need more information (pictures).
The veneer of a home being poorly installed, whether it be brick, wood, vinyl, etc does not mean the house is a lemon. Be very careful.
Cracks in CMU or bricks?
