I bought a house in 2017 that was built in 1998. The previous owner had notified me of two foundation cracks that he had repaired from the interior (epoxy injection). In February 2019 (second winter in the home) both foundation cracks ended up leaking (water in the basement). I had both cracks repaired again from the outside this time with a water proof membrane.
I spoke with the old owner and he claims the epoxy injection was done 6 years ago.
Is it normal for foundation cracks to continue after so many years? I’m concerned that there are more serious issues with the house. I’ve looked online for other symptoms and do not see any other symptoms with the house(i.e. sagging floors, stuck windows or doors).
Do foundation cracks automatically mean we have a foundation issue, or is it normal for a house to have a couple of foundation cracks? If they are repaired with a waterproof membrane is this the end of it or is it possible that they continue to crack wider and wider creating more problems? If the house was 19 years old when we bought it, would it have already been identified if there were serious foundation issues (i.e if the house’s footing was broken)?
