When houses are built, the base beneath feet is balanced and flat and each thing lines up perfectly.  After some course of time, the land beneath the house moves, shifts, sinks and reach simply in a different place from when the structure was first built which results in jammed windows, door and cracks.  Thus, the appropriate solution is to turn things back to normal like before, by lifting, levelling and supports the structural integrity through a procedure known as underpinning. By keeping the things normally back to its place, the large cracks can be fixed using a putty and little bit of paint. Your house will become strong and safe while maintaining the beauty.
