Re: Shrinkage cracks in masonry walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Why not cut a control joint in the wall at these locations and caulk it, like
any other control joint?  I would also suggest cutting a joint above the
window head because the likelihood of a cracking appearing there is also
high.
