Does crack where wall meets ceiling look serious?

Postby chris_scotland » Fri Aug 21, 2015 7:56 pm

Good evening,

We've just bought a 1940's semi and have started stripping the old wallpaper to find a horizontal crack right along a wall, just below where the wall meets the ceiling.

I've attached a photo; does anyone think it's something that looks serious and requires further investigation, or just plaster coming away at a join after many years?

Crack in wall

The wall in question is the one separating us and the neighbouring property.

Apologies if this is a 'how long is a piece of string' type question, I'm completely new to this!

no problem, I would say, but if your that worried, get a professional to take a closer look
