Topic: Exterior Wall Crack Repair

I constructed a new home two years back.  Now there are cracks in many places in exterior side of the brick walls.  These cracks are causing dampness during raining season.  Please suggest best method to repair these cracks.

Dear S Kumar

                 Cracks must be repaired immediately when observed otherwise the life of structure will reduce causing structural failure. They not only weaken the building but spoil the beauty of walls also.  For repair see the Link below.  http://www.gharexpert.com/articles/Cracks-1468/How-To-Repair-Cracks_0.aspx

If face any comlicasy than contact at supprt@gharexpert.com
