    Services required: repair small cracks, repair damaged plasterboard
    Cracking type 1 – around window frames. The cracking around the windows in the top
    floor flats appears to reflect a differential movement between inner and outer leaves of
    the perimeter cavity walls. The inner surfaces are now lower, as shown by cracks
    under the window sills and the slope of the sills down into the rooms.

    Cracking type 2 – external elevations. Brickwork will also expand slightly with
    increasing temperatures. The single vertical movement joint on the rear (north)
    elevation splits it in to two equal halves of about 12metres. There are no movement
    joints apparent on the south elevation, although it does step in for the entrance. We
    would have specified movement joints in these internal corners a central joint in the
    middle of each side elevation and two on the rear elevations, possibly more, to relieve
    the forces of thermal expansion.

    Cracking type 3 – ceilings. The cracking in the ceilings may also be more of a problem
    for Third floor flats located as they are under the timber roof. Thermal and moisture
    related movement in a timbered roof should be controlled by taping, filling and or
    skimming ceilings. However, cracking was seen in two flats and was slightly more
    noticeable in the southern flat.

    Cracking type 4 – between internal partitions and external walls. The connection of
    internal walls with perimeter walls is often used by Structural Engineers as a bracing for
    the external walls. In this building the walls between rooms are non-load-bearing partitions and the studwork appears to be screwed to the plasterboard, not the external
    wall. The cracking between the internal partitions in flat #261and the external walls
    suggests that some movement has occurred. This movement is likely to be less
    pronounced at lower levels where the weight of the concrete floors helps to restrain the
    walls.
