    Hi. First time poster, hope you can help.

    I moved into this house in Hull 3 years ago and there were some cracks in various places but I lately noticed some which may have been there before, I cannot say for certain.

    The house is 1930s build, was flooded in 2007 but a concrete base was put in, so I don't think foundations are the issue, I expect it probably a heat/moisture issue but I would like some opinions before I call anyone out.

    I have attached some pictures (poor quality, I'm afraid and a couple are on their side...). Please let me know if I need to worry or not!

    Thanks bedroom 1.JPG bedroom 2.JPG bedroom 1.JPG bedroom 2.JPG downstairs doorway.JPG landing.JPG kitchen ceiling (downstairs).JPG

    I doubt that there's much to worry about given that 9 yrs ago the foundations were re-done.
    Are there any cracks or bulges on the outside surfaces?
    Have you had any knock-throughs since 2007?

    Hi vinn,
    thanks for your reply.
    Externally there's no sign of any cracking or anything untoward (besides some pointing that has seen better days in a couple of places)
    All the rooms are as they were in 2007, (one of the upstairs walls may have been moved a foot or so to increase the size of the smallest bedroom but that's it.
    I suspect the crack above the door frame may actually be as a result of my 7 year-old son swinging from it...
