Shrinkage cracking

Shrinkage cracks are very common in new buildings. They are caused when the new plaster expands when it fully dries out, leaving small hairline cracks in the plaster. These will not be detrimental to the fabric of the building and they are cheap to repair. This photo was taken during a Full Building Survey in Redhill, Surrey.
