New Construction ( crack in the foundation)
My boyfriend and I are building a home. While inspecting the home, we noticed a crack in the outside foundation (on the side). I'm just scared about it. The builder said it is normal, but I'm not sure. They still haven't completed the part where they wrap the foundation again with concrete to make it smooth (there are still pipes and wires hanging out of some parts of the foundation), but I was wondering if this is normal at this stage. Is that normal for the foundation of a new construction to have a crack on the side of it although they haven't wrapped it in concrete to smooth it? I'm new at home building and I am not sure what to think. I know cracks in the foundation is a sign of trouble, so should I be alarmed. Again there are still rough spots in the foundation where pipes and wires are hanging out ( home won't be completed until middle of next month). What do they do to prepare it, if it's normal? What to do or think?
