Plaster cracks

Posted by Brendan on November 17th, 1999 05:29 AM

Hi, everybody
I had recent renovations done to my house and after approx.2months plaster(hardwall)that had been applied over an old wall began to crack,like those found on dry ground.After these cracks established themselves and by tapping along the wall a hollow sound could be heard.This sounds like the plaster finish has begun to detach itself from the base.Has anybody got the cause / cure.
Note:- The original wall consisted of a concrete cavity block rendered with what I believe a very strong lime based plaster.The other walls that are newly built along side this re-rendered wall appear fine so far
