    Hi all just noticed a stair type crack on the exterior of my house running through the mortar at the top corner few courses down from the guttering wondered if it’s something to be worried about or best way to fix it we’ve just purchased the property so unsure how long it’s being this way thanks

    Is it nothing serious with the cracks running diagonally through the mortar especially as it’s at a top corner thanks

    Hi background is 34,000 posts on this forum and 4,500 thanks. I would suggest he has half an idea what he is talking about and no just some eejit passing by.

    Oh and if forum "expetise" isn't what you were after, then probably best not to ask in an internet forum.

    Well, it's a long story.

    Are you familiar with the movie Highlander?

    Turns out both @^woody^ and @tony1851 are bored immortals... They've both taken on various guises throughout time, from archimedes to isambard kingdom brunel, joseph bazalgette, scotty from star trek...

    Tony's definitely older, he's still in B&W.

    Some of his finest work was the rebuild following the great fire. Although your work on the great wall was equally impressive

    Helped out a bit in the Cuban revolution and does knitting. Then posts sarcasm on a building forum in his spare time.
