Hello, I am looking to buy a small property. There are noticable cracks in the walls. Seller says that the house, built around 1920, is resting on clay. As the ground moves it causes uneven movement of the walls, which is responsible for the cracks. Seller says he has consulted a building engineer who has recommended putting pins around cracks to prevent the cracks from widening. I do not know what this process involves or whether it would stop the cracks from widening permanently, or is it just a temporary solution. Can anyone help? All responses will be greatly appreciated.
