Re: Cracked Concrete...Who Pays?

Contrary to what some people are saying, the contracter is not at fault here. Cement work rarely, if ever, has a warranty with it. I have purchased two NEW homes in the area during the past 4 years and both times the houses did not have a warranty on the cement outside of the actual foundation for the house becasue it expands. My father does this type of work and I know for a fact that ALL cement will crack! The only way to minimize cracks is to make the lines that sidewalks have (make squares)
