Signs of cracking and shrinkage are normal as your apartment has a ‘drying out’ period of between 9-12 months. Water has been absorbed during construction and it is important that the drying out period is gradual. This can be achieved by:
– Ensuring that the property is well ventilated.
– Using the heating sparingly during the first few months.
– Reducing condensation as much as possible by covering pans whilst cooking, drying clothes in well ventilated rooms, closing kitchen/bathroom doors to prevent steam from travelling through the property, using extractors, wiping down moisture off surfaces and maintaining a low background heat.
If you are concerned about a crack, then please email a photo by logging an issue on the Seven Capital Information Hub and a response will be provided by our Aftercare team. Ordinarily cracks can be dealt with during normal decoration once the property has dried out, however large cracks of a certain thickness will be covered under warranty.
White deposits may appear on wall surfaces which is called efflorescence. Efflorescence can be caused by the natural seepage of salts used in the construction materials. This should not be of concern, as the marks can be wiped down with a dry stiff brush. It is important not to wash the marks, as it will make the issue worse.
