This house is 1960’s built house that had issues with water seepage and a minor horizontal wall fracture. This horizontal fracture in this particular foundation did not display any notable deflection. But with any horizontal fracture we consider it structural and look to reduce lateral loads so as to decrease the chance of future inward deflection. In some cases we will recommend an interior structure wall for reinforcement, or as in this case, monitoring for a period of time after our project.
