Why Are There So Many Cracks In My Walls?
Cracks in bricks and mortar lines are a common issue for brick walls. While this problem doesn’t always indicate serious structural damage, cracked brickwork can look unsightly and make your home prone to water damage and mold. Apart from obvious disasters like Earthquakes, there are a few things that can cause cracks in brickwork.
Over time, restricted moisture in the soil can have a considerable impact on home structures, causing cracking and movement. As well as heat and low rainfall, cracks can also be caused by targeted sun exposure or tree and shrub root systems that rob valuable moisture from the soil.
Cracks can spread over time and become larger, however, most cracks can be fixed once movement has settled, and don’t cause any significant issue.
