I found a crack in a slab today. I am trying to do some research on it before I ask you guys to bail me out with some answers. I found this and I am wondering if you guys agree.
" When does a foundation crack become a concern? The Shallow Foundation Committee of the American Society of Civil Engineers has published some guidelines for evaluating cracks in slab-on-ground foundations based on the width of the crack. Their recommendation is that if a crack is 1/16th inch wide, it should probably be looked at by an engineer. They also state that cracks that are 1/8th inch or less do not typically indicate that the foundation is not capable of performing as intended. Also, the Shallow Foundation Committee points out that the presence of cracks in slab-on-ground foundations "does not indicate a life- threatening, dangerous condition."P
Do you guys agree that any crack in slab larger than 1/16 inch of inch should be looked at by an engineer
