This is sometimes due to missing pointing or porous brickwork that needs sealing. It can also be because the window is poorly fitted, is not sealed properly or has a corroded or missing cavity tray above the window.

Got a stepped crack in my brickwork above an opening?

This may be due to either corroded wall ties or lack of support over an opening such as a doorway or window. Crack stitching ties cracked walls together using helibars or reinforcing rods, allowing masonry to flex slightly but holding the wall in place.

If a sandstone lintel above an opening has a crack in it, this can be repaired with waterproof cement.
