Why would a slab crack that is built on sand and is 12 yrs old. The cracks appear to be active (as in showing signs of movement). The rear of the structure is approximately 5 feet from the canal. Visual inspections of the bulkhead did not show signs of erosion or washout. Is it washingout under the water? I do not know? Typically there should be piles under the rear of structures that are that close to the water. So what would you do? or what would you tell a buyer without having to worry about the seller sueing you?
Someone educate me about sand. I always thought it was the best material to build on. Thanks in advance for any advice or source of material.
