    Default Concrete Foundation Walls

    What is the building code for maximum out-of-plumb tolerances for concrete block foundation walls?

    And masonry block walls?

    Thanks,

    As I recall, ACI 530 allows 1/2" out of line in 20 feet, either horizontally or vertically.

    Of course, though, whether ACI 530 applies or not would affect the final answer.
