I’m looking to buy a house and found this crack in the center of a two car garage.
I suspect this is a typical crack from sagging of some sort, however I just don’t want problems out of it. I’m not concerned about the aesthetics, but not really interested in structural problems or costly repairs.
Should I expect this crack to continue to grow, or is this one that might appear and then stops once it’s settled in? I’m guessing it to be ~1/4" wide at the widest spot over the center of the 2 car garage opening.
The house is built in 2006. If you notice in one of the pictures, the crack is wide at the bottom, goes right through the bricks, and is headed toward a window. A bathroom (specifically the bathtub) and some closets are located at/near this spot on the 2nd floor if that’s of interest.
Is this something that should get immediate attention, and if so, what sort of repairs would fix something like this?
