Observation: Concrete block basement wall is cracked.

Performance Standard: Cracks in concrete block basement walls shall not exceed 1/8 inch in width.

Corrective Measure: Cracks that exceed the performance standard will be thoroughly cleaned, filled, and troweled level using a latex-fortified cement mixture or other material designed to fill cracks and bond concrete.

Discussion: Minor cracks in concrete masonry are often caused by settling of the building. These cracks are not of a structural nature.
