WHAT CAUSES CRACKS IN BRICK WALLS AND MORTAR?
Cracks in your brickwork are caused by incorrectly laid foundations that are susceptible to ground movement. Ground movement is caused by things such as moisture, drought, or tree roots but well laid foundations should not be affected by these things.
Around Perth, more modern buildings commonly have cracks or damage resulting from badly placed vertical breaks in the brickwork (control joints). Repairing these joints can become a ...costly exercise if not done with proper masonry repair, as the cracking will reappear and affect even more of the brickwork if not properly repaired and reinforced.
Brick and Mortar Restoration completed a job last week in Canningvale in which the dividing brick wall had significant cracks in it. Brick and Mortar Restoration replaced bricks and installed a new lintel to protect the wall from and future tree roots.
