I did a "visual" inspection on a 100 year old house with a brick foundation. There are many obvious signs of cracking within the doors/windows, floor settling, general sinking feeling toward the interior of the structure. I measured between 1 to 3 inches of differential settlement in the rooms all sloping towards the middle of the house. I believe its the foundation (after I crawled under the house) but has anyone came across issues with old brick foundations? I'm not big on the "oh the house has been standing for 100 years it should be good for another 100" answer I get from everyone.
