What would you do about this crack in brick exterior?
About 6 years ago we had several foundation repair companies out and they all said the cause of the crack was a tree about 10 feet away, not foundation damage. So we had a company out who trenched (or something like that) all along the foundation to sever roots and put down a barricade. It seemed to work for a few years but last year we noticed the crack was worse so we cut down the tree. When we had some brick work done last fall, the guy filled in the crack with mortar, but it has since fallen out. Our choices now are to fill in with a crack filler that comes in a tube or cut the brick out and rebrick the whole area. Anyone ever dealt with a crack like this? I don't want it to hurt our resale value. It's under the kitchen window btw.
