Cracks around door frames

Postby thomas.fontaine » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:52 am

I noticed that it is not unusual to see where I live the wall rendering cracking around internal door frames, and sometime badly.

Does anybody know why and how to avoid it?

Get a qualified builder using quality materials and budget enough for a strong foundation.

And teach your builder that there are other ways to fix a door frame to the wall than to nail it, especially if the walls are made from the thinnest and cheapest blocks they could find :roll:
