    To be quite honest, leave it as it is. Anything further you do to repair those cracks, will stick out like a sore thumb.
     
  4. Thanks - any ideas why it might have done it in the first place?

    Looks like movement/settlement cracks.

  7. Is that a concern?
     
  8. or is it more like thermal movement/settling as the house was new?

    The very same as Darrington said.
     
  10. Thanks for your replies. What I was trying to ask is that is this normal settlement or subsistence? I don’t know the difference as this was my first house and I’m no expert here.
