I agree with Jerry that it should be looked at by a professional, and not just patched (which is what ya know the builder will do) … except that IMHO there is no need to get a GE and then an SE. For residential structures all ya need is a good SE. Large commercial structures with poor/difficult soil conditions is something different.
Also, be very very careful with any repair recommendations on structural elements (not just this one). It puts a very large monkey squarely on your back as an HI.
Just my 2-nickels as an SE also ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
