Apartments with footing movement

Cracks to back wall of this block of units from footing movement.

  • Other inspectors don’t look at the exterior of an apartment building or common property, even where it is easily accessible.
  • This can prove to be a costly mistake for you! 

Footing movement to apartments

The brick walls have been covered with render and the cracks have occurred since.

  • This is an indicator that further footing movement is highly likely.

Important point:

The reason for this render cover was not just for aesthetics, but to cover previous movement of this building!
