Cracking of aircrete domes over time
In watching this video:
I'm wondering what people's opinions are about cracking. I understand he's referring to vertical walls and understand that these same rules may well apply to normal concrete and it's apples and oranges, but still...
So that said, my questions are:
- Is cracking in block-based aircrete domes an issue (I'd especially like to hear about long-term issues)?
- If they are, what remedies have you identified?
- If the cause is something in the construction process, what is it and are cracks completely avoidable with a good construction process?
@gbathree cracking is avoidable with a strong outer shell and fabric wrap. Also using a silicone base paint will create a water membrane for impermeability.
