In the middle of a drought here in the south and with gumbo clay soil = foundation problems... I think. Well here is the situation. I was working on the lawn and notice a crack a about 2'-3' above my foundation runnning a good way up the wall. This crack is not more than 1/4 gap, most of it is 1/8 or quite a bit less. I believe it appears to be solely cosmetic but I do not know. The slab is a post-tension slab and appears to be in pretty good shape. I'm going to remove a small plum tree which is close by and put a soaker hose in to keep the soil damp.
Anyone been through something similar and if so did a soaker hose help solve the problem over time or did you call in a foundation repair man? From everything I've read it sounds like a lot of the repairs are more cosmetic than structural???
Just wanting some opinions. I have a site inspection scheduled, and checked with insurance they don't cover JACK!!!
