concrete foundation and cracking
I just noticed your message, because I was going to post an identical question regarding my new home in Manteca, CA. Our foundation is concrete slab and we, too, recently discovered cracks that run for quite a few feet through the center portion of the slab. The builder has already filled the cracks and assured us that this is a normal occurence.
My question to you is: Have you been able to independently verify if cracking is acceptable? What about your issues with tile floors and long term protection of your real estate investment? I sure would appreciate any insight you may have gained from your experience. If I come across any helpful information, I will post it to you. By the way, please feel free to email me directly (email@example.com). Thanks.
