Vertical cracks in cinder block foundation

5 years ago
last modified: 5 years ago

We've been living in our house for a year. I just noticed some vertical cracks that go through mortar joints and the middle of cinder blocks from top of wall down to bottom of wall. This occurs in two places along the same wall. I have no clue how long they have been there. Our house is a log cabin in NC. The soil is clay. Should I be concerned? I've included pictures of the cracks and the progression of the foundation being built. The cracks are on the longest wall.
