Brick town house, end unit, street slopes downhill to the left.
The mortar under each of the windows on the left side of the front of the house has been newly repointed. As you can see, they form a zig zag crack under each window. Many other joints were alos repointed, but not in such a way that it seemed to be a potential crack line like it is here.
The interior was recently redone, so no cracks are present in the new drywall, and all windows operate properly. The basement below the crack lines has a 4x4 post that is splitting vertically almost directly in line with the windows. It supports a 3x12 joist that is splitting slightly horizontally, but both seemed solid.
Any thoughts on the potential problems here? The cracks are not excessively large, have been patched, and are not unusual for the homes in the area, so I am tempted to note it but not call for an SE evaluation.
I am interested in your takes here...!(upload://1jFznqVzeK3BnpTJEzLKwuvaoxE.jpeg)
