Why Does Brickwork Crack?

These are the main reasons for brickwork to crack:

  • Inadequate drainage: Faulty drains, leaks, or disconnected pipes can provoke soil erosion beneath the house, destabilising the ground and causing foundation instability and wall fractures.
  • Seasonal fluctuations: Severe changes such as droughts and floods can trigger significant soil contraction and expansion, contributing to wall fractures.
  • Nearby trees: Intrusive root systems from neighbouring trees can draw water from the soil, altering its moisture balance and resulting in wall fractures.
  • Additional weight: Wall fractures might occur if a house’s weight, due to extensions or renovations, surpasses its original design capacity, putting undue stress on the structure and its foundation.
  • Reactive soils: These types of soils expand or shrink based on varying moisture levels throughout the year, causing irregular strain on house foundations and contributing to wall fractures.
  • Deteriorated building materials: As time goes on, building materials might deteriorate due to influences like gravity, weathering, or decay, which weakens structural soundness and results in wall fractures.

Why You Need to Fix Damaged Bricks

Fixing damaged brickwork is very important for keeping your house in good shape. If you don’t pay attention to these problems, they could get worse. Issues like clay soil that changes with the weather, bad drainage, and extra weight might lead to bigger damage.

At the same time, if your house isn’t built well, it might continue to break down if the problem isn’t resolved. This could quickly result in cracks forming due to expanding materials, making your property less safe.

If you don’t look after these cracks, they could let in water damage, and soil could be washed away, which might make your home even more unstable.

Here’s what you can anticipate from us in terms of mending broken brickwork:
