Investigating when slab heave damage first occurred

Establishing a Damage Time Frame

Use these tips to help establish a timeframe for the damage:

  1. Have the homeowner start a crack diary immediately. If the homeowner has a crack diary ask for a copy of it.
  2. Determine the homeowners recollections of where the damage was first noticed.
  3. Ask the homeowners for copies of pre-purchase reports if the house is second hand. Often inspectors take photos of cracks and note them in their reports.
