Corner Cracks
 
1 Attachment(s)

As many more houses in South Texas, our house suffers from exterior corner cracks in the concrete slab. All corners with cracks were covered with concrete when we first moved in three years ago. About one year ago, one of the corners separated from the house (see link), but no other problems have been seen (no cracks in the interior corner, walls, window or door frames, etc). I'm concerned because the "crack" went beyond the slab and reached the masonry. Any tips in how to repair this problem? (I tried before, but the result is obvious). Is it time to call a contractor?

Any comments will be appreciated.

I'm guessing that my issue with cracked foundation at corner of my house is of no issue as well. Can someone give me their assessment if this is an issue? Below are pics of the cracked corner at foundation slab.

Thanks
