I will check the outside wall. Do you mean on either side of the garage? Above the garage door is a crack in the cement. The townhouse was built around 1990.I will be back after I check.Thank you.

I think the site prompts you for the phone call option. Sorry if it is a nuisance. Reviewing the pictures now.

Do you know if the garage was poured at the same time as the foundation? Is this a house with a crawl space, basement or slab?

I have a finished outter basement with a back door. What would be a slab basement?Thank you.R.

A slab is a house that does not have a basement or crawl space and is built on a concrete slab. So, is the crack something new or could it have been there for a long time? Have you noticed the crack getting larger?
