Re: Gap from slab to internal hallway wall2

I assume the following: the slab belongs to the garage and was poured after the house walls were in... and that the house has a timber floor (on the right in photo 1).
IF so, then I would be very worried about a complete lack of ventilation to the sub-floor along this abutment AND risk of termite attack.
I assume that the wall was there before the garage slab... and it seems that the wall has problems at the bottom course and may be curved. There is a requirement that a slab poured against an existing brick wall needs to be separated by a control joint.
If the house is a concrete slab that was poured first and the garage slab was built later (seems unusual to have what appears to be particleboard atop the house slab.
Give us a shot from the hall side and elevation of the bottom joint of the brick wall if you would.

you need to provide more information like, where you are located , soil type, wall construction etc
The quality of the answers depends on the information provided by you!
