Self Care FAQ

My new home has cracks appearing on the walls, ceilings and along the staircase, what should I do?

This is normally nothing to worry about and is part of the process of your home drying out. These cracks are called shrinkage and we recommend waiting at least 12 months before attending to them to ensure your home is fully dry. Some filler and paint will generally sort this problem out.

For more information, please refer to the NHBC ‘Guide to your new home.’
