Repaired CRACK SLAB - Posted by will

To fellow investors who have experience in buying cracked slab homes,
I am currently in an escrow with a home that had a cracked slab but apparently is fixed now according to the seller. Crack happened before the current seller, and seller has a paper from a contractor/previous seller that the work was done and the problem was corrected.
I had a professional inspector inspect the house, but since the foundation is under the carpet, he coudn’t do much of an inspection on the repair of the crack.
What would be your recommendations? Should I hire crack slab specialist(professional structural engineer) and lift the flooring to do the inspection? Or do you think the seller’s paper is sufficient as a proof that the crack is fixed when I resell this property?
Your thoughts would be appreciated very much.
