    Cracks in render/rising damp


    My nearby outbuilding has developed cracks in the exterior render and interior plaster over the winter and in my house I think I have rising damp.

    Do I get one person to assess the work? If so what kind of trade is best for a first view to work out what the risks are and what the right courses of action should be?
