More red flags (photos below):

  • Cracks at upper corners of windows and doors (uneven foundation settling)

As a rule of thumb, if you’re standard No. 2 pencil can go into the crack up to the yellow paint on the pencil, that's a pretty wide crack and might be a sign of a major problem. A ruler is another handy tool: Cracks wider than 3/16 inch, even vertical ones, can be a problem. Mark smaller cracks with tape and monitor their progress over the coming months.

Also be on the lookout for horizontal cracks or bulging or buckling. Along with expanding cracks, those conditions require the attention of a structural engineer. The longer you wait to correct this problem, the more costly it will probably end up decreasing your home resale value by 15% or more, says Consumer Reports News.
