I am building a home in the houston area. nearly 3000 sq. ft. 1 story house, so a pretty big slab.
I am noticing now while walking through the home during the electrical wiring stage that the slab has hairline cracks (probably 1/8") in nearly every room of the home.
Seems like they originate from the edges of the slab or at holes where the plumbing is.
I know that shrinkage is normal, but these cracks run the whole length of the slab and ive found them in all areas of the house. Ive walked through a lot of homes and havnt seen this before but maybe i just wasnt looking close enough.
Do you think this is a structural problem, not structural and just sloppy, or normal concrete laying and ive just never noticed it before.
I am having a home inspector come out for phase 2 to check before the insulation and sheetrock is set, but i guess its too late to do anything about the foundation. I should have had a phase 1 inspection...
I really appreciate any advice. Thank you.
