Topic: NEW TERRACE HAIRLINE CRACKS IN MORTAR

Have relaid the top layer of our terrace floor with a cemnt sand mix of 1:4 alongwith waterproof compounds.
Curing was doen by waterfilling for 10days.
I now find that the top layer has hairline cracks in many places.
My contractor it is normal and now nothing can be done and there will be no issues.
I am worried that these cracks will widen with time and also there will be leakages.
Can the same be filled by crack fillings or some other solution and will this be a permanent solution.

Dear Murtaza
         Your query is not clear, on what base you laid cement sand mix 1;4 write in detail.
In my view you laid cement sand mix 1;4 on brick tile terracing and which shows cracks on top, if this the position than do not worry , if the mix is thin than it will  remain long time and if it is thick than it will be break after some time.
   But if tile joints are filled properly than there would be no leakage. no need to fill the cracks.
