I have recently moved in to a fantastic 1932
English Tudor home but unfortunately I'm missing the male gene for home repair and need your assistance.

There are several spots in the home where hairline fractures of 6 inches to 2 feet in length have appeared on the plaster walls. The fractures are found on the walls originating at the upper corners of door frames and extending upwards at 45 degrees or in some cases horizontally from the point of origin.

Are these fractures something I need to act on? Right away? What should be done?
Thanks for any help,
Andrew
