What are the cracks in my home?

Cracks in the walls of your home can appear both internally and externally and not every crack requires crack stitching. Some may be due to the drying of new plaster and redecoration works are normally sufficient.

The basic classification of cracks in buildings starts with their width and quantity and normally a crack up to 15mm can be repaired without extensive rebuilding of sections of wall.

Even when a cavity wall is present a crack in the outer leaf may lead to rainwater penetrating the building and damp issues will prevail. Even small cracks can distort a wall to such an extent that windows and doors start to stick.

Crack stitching Repairs are invisible and permanent.
