What to do about this?
I've a crack in the living room floor about 1/4" at the max so called the inspector back. He crawled under the space below and found a foundation under the crack area. He said plans probably included a porch there but plan was vixed and it became part of the living room. The house was built in 1912 and has settled but because that brick foundation is under the area it cannot settle with the rest of the house. The room is 14 x 20. I'll try to post the picture of the foundation found under the living room.
What I'm wondering is could I have someone take a recripracating saw or something else and make a mortar cut around the foundation causing the problem? It would just be two sides. I would think this would allow the floor to then settle closing the crack above. Hope for you help.
