I can see more clearly today that I have a hairline crack in my basement slab that runs nearly the full length side to side. It also looks like others noticed it too judging by the footprints around it. It is not horrible but not something I like to see right way. Possibly more control joints could have been added to help with that. This forum post did make me feel a little better, but I would like to try putting some water over the crack to make sure it is just superficial as the poster did:
In my browsing around and doing some research I found a whole wealth of inspection articles from Natchi.org too:
- Detailed information on proper deck building
- Life span of just about everything in the home
It is worth a look I think if you have time. Just all kinds of stuff in there!
