oN ONE CORNER OF MY HOUSE SOME OF THE BRICKS HAVE HAIRLINE CRACKS THROUGH THE BRICKS AND ALONG THE JOINTS. IT IS NOT EXTENSIVE. THE HOUSE IS A CONVERSION OF TWO COTTAGES WHICH WERE BUILT IN ABOUT 1850. WHAT IS THE BEST ACTION TO TAKE?

Anthony it sounds like it just needs a brick or 2 cut out and replaced and a bit of a repoint on the mortar good luck.
