Imagine living like a poor in a cinder block house. LOOOLGot new gutters two days ago. Having them piped to underground drainage on monday. Pretty stoked. House really needed it to get that pooling water away.
I had two masonry contractors come to take a look at the cracking on the house. The majority of the cinderblock cracking seems aesthetic. Some definitely needs to be grinder out and remortared. One guy seemed to think only the bigger cracks warranted remortaring and told me to just paint over smaller cracks.
Other guy was much more thorough taking pics of every crack and wants to remortar all of them. Not sure how that’ll look for cinderblocks where crack is in the actual block… I tried to get across that I need these patches to look unnoticeable texture wise (house will be repainted).
What do you guys think? Do small cracks in cinderblock need remortaring or just paint?
Here are some pics of smaller cracks to give you an idea.
