You can use seek-a-flex, which adheres well to concrete and contracts and expands with it. Its basically a silicone. May be spelled sic-a-flex.

Sad Smiley 046 Re: Cracks on wall

There are several factors that contribute to the cracking of walls, despite attempts to patch them using aftermarket products. One of the worst, or frequently encountered, problem is when we just re-paint our walls! A research was done and we extract some of the factors that might cause our wall cracks.

1. CLIMATE CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE

Changes in weather can cause changes in your home. That’s because when things get warmer or colder, it can cause the building materials in your home to expand or shrink. Because of this, you can expect to see some superficial cracks in your home – those are no big deal. However, deeper and wider cracks can be cause for concern and caused by other more serious problems.

2. BAD FOUNDATION OF STRUCTURAL

You have probably heard that houses need to settle for a bit after they are built. That is true – but sometimes a home can settle too much. If your home was not built on a good foundation, it could be settling unevenly or even sinking too much. When this happens, deep cracks in your home can form as the settling process pulls at your walls.

3. EXCESSIVE WEIGHT

Sometimes cracks can stem from heavy loads placed on floors and ceilings. For example, putting up a lighting fixture that is too heavy can cause cracks to appear in your ceiling. A very heavy piece of furniture like a large bookcase can put more strain on a room than it can handle. This tends to be especially true for rooms with hardwood flooring.

4. STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS

If your house has problems with its foundation, those problems can manifest in all kinds of ways. You could see crooked doorways, uneven floors or big cracks in the walls. If you suspect there are problems with your home’s foundation, you must bring in a professional before the situation gets any worse. A good contractor can fix damaged foundation – putting a stop to cracks and making sure your house remains a safe place for you to live.

5. TOO MUCH MOISTURE

Access to water inside your home makes your life much easier, but if water gets in the wrong place it can cause big problems. Water can cause the materials in your home to bloat, mold, rot and weaken. It can cause your walls to crack and crumble. If you parts of your home beginning to crack and crumble and see mold or notice a bad smell – water damage could be to blame.


Nevertheless, the above is just one of the many speculations on our cracked walls. If you encounter cracked walls far too often and is greatly disturbed by the imperfection, you may want to consider using wall-coverings to cover up the ugly cracked-lines and bring more life onto your walls.

Hope this info helps.

I am not sure if you would like to try this out..You will need to do plastering before painting to stop the crack coming back.
