We are about to make an offer to a townhouse in Seattle. Do you think these cracks are major? it looks like that is a trim board, which if that’s the case can be replaced or even sanded and repainted and it isn’t structural, so wouldn’t matter if it’s cracked a bit… Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I would agree with mike that it looks like it is wood split.
Thankfully it’s a piece of trim that would be an easy fix. One good way to further investigate would be to take the trim piece off and see what it looks like behind there. If you see further damage it would be best to get it professionally inspected.
