Foundation cracks. Get a second opinion. Desert Sun Home inspections.
There are times when inspecting a home that even us well informed inspectors need a second opinion about an issue.
This home has cracks in the foundation. But not only in the perimeter of the foundation but throughout the entire slab.This is a Monolith slab. Very common in this area. Having a basement or crawl space in homes around here is very uncommon but there are a few of them. In this case There are just too many cracks to not mention this in the report.
Let's get started with the apron to the garage. Although not a actual part of the foundation system, the apron is cracked and not a small crack either.
This is not uncommon in this part of the country. New Mexico has about 500 earth quakes a year.
But , the cracks continue into and throughout the homes monolith slab.This is what the garage floor looks like.
That is a lot of cracking going on.
These cracks in the slab inside the home were everyhere. Here we see them in the Master bath.
In the report I reported that the slab was cracked throughout the home. And if the buyer wanted to consult with a engineer then this may be the best course of action for the buyer.
There are some times a need for that second opinion from an expert in a specific field.
This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
