House on a slope and with some cracks/settle down. Normal or not?
The house is 20 years old. One side of the house on higher level, another side of house is on lower level. All the cracks and the settledown are found on the side of lower level.
1ï¼ša crack above the right garage door ; the drive way with very obvious settledown,the settledown in the right place is most serious. There is a city water box on the left driveway.
2ï¼š a vertical crack above the fireplace (only on the brick,not go up to the wall above the brick) in the first floor
3ï¼š a horizontal crack on the ceiling of the second floor
4ï¼ša vertical old crack above a door of the second floor
All the cracks and settle down places are all in the side of the house in lower level of the slope. Wonder whether there any connection with the slope? Should the problems be paid attention to?
