Cracks in exterior brick
Moved into our house about 1.5yrs ago. At the time, there were some cracks in the brick/mortar on opposite ends of the house, widest for either was about 1/8". We asked for a foundation inspection before purchase, and they suggested about $3500 worth of repairs, although they indicated nothing was severe.
Recently had a different company come out, they have suggested placing 7 exterior push piers in varying places around the house where the cracking appears. They have quoted $800 per pier total, tax included, lifetime warranty on all work against future movement. Company is very reputable, comes highly recommended. I plan on getting additional quotes for comparison.
Does this sound like reasonable pricing? I grew up in a house with cracks in brick, never had foundation issues (that I was aware of). House is 14 years old, want to correct any problems, but don't want to go overboard. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts/recommendations.
Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all!!!
