Crack in external wall and now internal

Postby sal1 » Sat Sep 12, 2020 9:10 am

Hi,
I have a crack in my external wall. It was smaller and recently it’s grown a lot. On the inside of that wall, there is also now a crack which has grown larger- I thought it was just the plaster. Please can anyone advise what I need to do.
What tradesman do I
call and what experience/qualification should I ask about?

Simply Build It

Hi sal1
Suggest you wait and see how much the cracks alter. If you are concerned you could ask any builder to have a look but you may have to use a structural engineer if they think it needs further investigation.

Thank you, that’s really helpful to know. I will search for suitable person to check what’s happening.
