    Lightbulb Minton Wall Crack

    I am currently hunting for a resale condo and found The Minton project quite ideal in terms of the layout and affordability. However, during my viewing, i noticed the exterior wall of the concrete blocks, most of them if not all, appeared massive cracks. And this observation extends to the balconies of all the units i have visited. The agent told me the wall crack is very normal in SG due to the weather, nevertheless, it reflects a big red flag of quality defects in my head. Could anyone here share any thoughts on this? Are the cracks merely minor defects caused by painting or more concerns should be raised on major construction quality? thank you very much in advance.

    Massive cracks over large areas are not common lah! (at least that is not my experience with CCR condos, not even those that is >15 years old).

    Yeh, that bothers me a bit, it only TOP 3 years but the project maintenance looks pretty bad
