4.1.1 - Foundation

Foundation Cracks - Minor

Minor cracking was noted at the foundation. This is common as concrete ages and shrinkage surface cracks are normal. Recommend monitoring for more serious shifting/displacement. 

Here is an informational article on foundation cracks.

Comment
4.1.2 - Foundation

Poor Ventilation of Foundation Area

The foundation is poorly ventilated. Increased ventilation (introduction and movement of fresh air) is recommended. This can be accomplished by partially opening basement windows, doors and/or vents on opposite sides of the foundation on a regular basis (when weather is suitable).  And by installing a dehumidifier to decrease moisture.


There was some evidence of moisture possibly due to humidity.
