    Thinking of getting a new roof and drive way, but some cracks on my external wall and window frames are leaving me wondering if there is a subsidence issue.

    I have checked the neighbours and my family across the road and they have the same cracks.

    I don't want to spend 6k if there is an issue.....anyone able to help looking at the pictures?

    Thanks, I hit a panic moment.

    I was checking other houses and they all have the same wear on them.

    Panic over.

    Thanks for your help.
