just a quick question....I have a montreal-style bilevel home (garage in the
basement style)....I noticed that I have a very (very) fine hairline crack
that runs from the edge of the pad about 5 feet in. No shifting or
difference in height from one side to the other. VERY fine, and almost
imperceivable to pick at with your fingernail.
should I be worried? the house is a 1984 model, and there is NO signs of
any shifting in this time. thoughts?
There are two types of concrete, the kind that cracks and the kind that is
going to crack.
No worries, as others have said, for small cracks as you describe. If there
is movement and big changes or heaving then you may want to be concerned.
You are in deep trouble brother. You better hire a structual engineer ASAP and
move you family out of the house before the garage floor collaspes.
If that does not do you in, ants and termites will enter you hosue thru these
cracks and east all of your oreos and furniture.
