Q. Why shouldn't I just ignore and patch?
A. Homes and buildings can tolerate settlement up to ¾" with no signs on the structure. For various reasons, even long after construction is complete, some homes or buildings will continue to settle beyond the acceptable tolerance. So often, owners will patch the brick and or drywall and think the problem is over. Unfortunately, unless the problem is addressed the home or building will continue to settle. The cracks will reopen and all the remedial cost is gone.
