Question DetailsAsked on 2/17/2020

I have cracks in plaster walls that expand to 1/2" wide in summer and contract in winter.

The underlying reason for the cracks appearing is drying of a water problem around the foundation (replaced foundation drain tiles.) No building structural damage is evident (e.g. foundation cracks, mortar cracks, etc.) I made repairs with fiberglass tape and filled with MH Ready Patch this year but the tape is bulging as the cracks contract. It has been suggested that I use liquid concrete to fill the cracks and overlay with galvanized wire mesh and then finish coating. Will this provide the stability to keep the seasonal changes in the crack width from occurring?
