It may come as a surprise to many people that it’s common place for newly built extensions to get cracks. This occurs because of movement between the ground and the wall.
But it’s just been built! I hear you cry. Whist we understand that it’s a pain to have to re-plaster and redecorate an area that’s just been built, it’s a job that’s got to be done.
We empathise that paying out more money to fill the cracks is the last thing you will want to do, don't rush into this. We recommend that you wait at least a year before tackling the problem.
The movement in a newly built extension takes place over a period of time and can affect various places. Settlement cracks can occur in the joint between the ceiling and wall.
The weather and quality of materials used in your extension are determining factors of the severity of cracks seen in your walls and ceilings.
So, if your extension is just a couple of months old and the sight of those cracks are driving you mad - get in touch! We can assess the damage and book you in to be seen in a few months’ time. This will give you peace of mind and time to allow any further cracks to appear.
