In answer to your questions about the basement walls. cracks are up and down and also follow along the filler between blocks. Only one is in the corner of one wall. they go up and down and as I said sometimes along the blocks verical.
the job was done by a waterproofing contractor. they used a bobcat to dig out and fill in but did not compact the stones then they filled in with dirt on top of the stones. The cracks usually start from the top down. The cracks are along each wall most of them are hairline. There are also spiderweb cracks in the floor. Thank you for your time. Judy
