Exterior Walls that are experiencing cracking are weakened by poor soils at the foundation and results in the wall settling, causing the cracking. I have had to have foundations underpinned and jacked up in the location of the cracking, repoured new concrete under the existing foundation, to form new concrete foundation support at a deeper level. Then after refilling and stablizing the foundation, we had the cracked mortar removed and tuckpointed the new mortar in the brick facade.
This will fix most problems in the settlement of your foundations and wall, preventing it from cracking further.
