Explanation: Settlement of the garage concrete pad is an indication of insufficient pad thickness. Other causes may include soil compaction soils with low bearing capacity and ground heave. Settlement as a condition by itself does not usually result in garage structure issues. Settlement combined with other structural concerns often indicates the garage as a whole may no longer be structurally sound.
Impact/Consequences: Settlement cracks in garage floor should be monitored for change over time. Should cracks result in possible trip hazards a specialist should be consulted for repair.
