cracks in brick face
I live in a brick rowhouse built in 1900. Most of the bricks have little hairline cracks running through the face of the bricks.
Here are some pictures showing the cracks:
Should I be concerned or is this normal? I have lived in the house 1 1/2 years and the cracks haven't visibly changed in that time.
My inspection report from the time of the sale makes no mention of the bricks. It only mentions that the mortar is eroded in places. Obviously I have to deal with the eroding mortar, but what about the bricks themselves?
My neighbors on one side seem to have similar cracks in many of their bricks. My neighbors on the other side painted their bricks so it's hard to tell if they have cracks.
