it is possible due to poor leveling of the sub floor....i noticed caulking in the bottom of the baseboard so obviously there was a gap there to begin with. otherwise whoever worked on it wouldnt even bother. the gap there is due to caulking shrinking as other people mentioned.

i highly doubt its shifting foundation or settlling. in order to fix this is to get rid of the old floor and level the area and retile. getting rid of the old floor is the pain in the ass

Yeah, I've been putting this off for the longest time... and now that I'm thinking of selling my place, I should get this fixed.

Finally had someone take a look and they suspect the builders didn't pack the dirt/sand down enough right by the inside edge of the foundation.

Cheapest way to patch this up is to replace the broken tiles and not the entire tile area (duh), but the problem is that I don't have enough replacement tiles. One possibility is to find something very similar in pattern.

So, any recommendations for places/warehouses that have a large selection of granite tiles?

Goes back to previous posters comments to house settling. Sign of poor workmanship and not natural occurences. Its really too bad that someone can't put in a few minuts pf extra work to do things right.

Good luck with the repair.

How old is this house? Is this the ground floor?

Looks like a crack, but it could be settlement.
