Why is my ceiling cracking?

If you’re asking yourself ‘why is my ceiling cracking?’, we’re going to guess you’re feeling a little concerned – did they just happen, or have they been there for years? Try not to worry. They may look dramatic, but cracks in the ceiling are not often a major concern. Regardless, it’s a good idea to investigate what’s causing them, just in case. 

The first step is to work out whether the cause is simply cosmetic, or if you’re dealing with a structural issue. If it’s the latter, you’ll need to act sooner rather than later. If a repair is necessary, it’s much safer – and more cost effective – to correct it in the early stages before it becomes a bigger problem.
