Crack Monitoring/Tell Tales

Most buildings crack at sometime during their service life. Usually the cracks are of little consequence but they may be the first indication of a serious defect. Monitoring the changes in crack width across a crack helps determine the cause of cracking and decide what remedial work should be specified. South Survey supply a range of products for monitoring the movement of cracks.
