Structural Movement

Structural Movement

“Stepped” settlement cracking in mortar joints to the rear outside corner of a Victorian terraced house.

It is unclear from a single inspection if this movement is ongoing. It may be due to leaking drains which are suspiciously positioned in the vicinity.

The first step will be for the drains to be checked in detail to establish their condition. What course of action to follow next will be dependent upon the outcome of this investigation.
