basement foundation.

Posted by Demetrios B on July 12th, 1999 02:00 PM

I just bought a home that is about 50 years old. I just noticed
that it has some horizontal cracks on 2 of the walls.
Furthermore, I have been getting some water in my basement.

My question is: are all horizontal cracks damaging and
a sign of repair? Also, the water never comes in by or
underneath these cracks?
However, the room is refinished, so could there be cracks behind the wood. But when it rains, the water
doesn't seem to make any of the wood wet, just the floor along the edges
and once again, not near the horizontal cracks?
Do I have an expensive problem or is this normal? Demetrios Begos MIlW, WI
