I agree with many of the other comments. I would add that if a crack is a question i would always do a monometer survey. I don't know why structural engineers often leave this to a soil engineer except that they may not know how simple it is . A simple but accurate enough manometer can be bought for $29.00 at Whitecap hardware ( make sure you ask for a hydrolevel ). Home Depot also has one that is not quite as good. For $450.00 you can get a very impressive one but it is no more accurate. I have both and prefer the $ 29.00 model with a tape measure. For slabs that are open and over 100' long a surveyors level is better. Tom Harris , SE Thousand Oaks, CA ...
