I recently purchased a 3 bed semi (approx 1930's) when i purchased it,it had been empty and UN-heated for around 14+months.
I then had new central heating fitted,i had it skimmed (full house) and then let the plaster dry naturally for around 6 months,after 6 months i had it painted watered down matt paint.
The painter then mixed pva in the paint (acylic egg shell) and painted all the house,after 2-3 weeks of it being painted i finally moved in.
Now ive noticed cracking along the bottom of the wall where it joins the top of the skirting not big cracks and not hairline cracks,inbetween i'd say.
I was told its normal as the house has been heated/lived in after nearly 17 months. Ive only noticed the cracks in some places only..like stairs,living room (on bottom of one wall-along top of skirting) and one hairline crack by the edge of bedroom window.
This something to worry about or is this normal ?
