Cracked Bricks

If you’ve noticed stair-step cracking in a brick or block wall, that’s a sure sign of foundation movement. The reason you see this pattern in your masonry is that the mortar holding the bricks or blocks together is the weakest point of your wall. Therefore, when your foundation or wall is subjected to excessive stress due to situations like a sinking foundation or surrounding soil exerting pressure a crack will form in the mortar in the direction of the shift, forming a stair-step pattern.
