“Dear PoPville,

I recently purchased an older rowhouse in DC, and I’m noticing a number of hairline cracks that are spreading and becoming concerning. The home inspector did not have any concerns about the foundation, and I know older homes do develop some cracks, but I think it may be a good idea to get an opinion from a structural engineer. Any good recommendations? Thanks!”
