Dutch term or phrase: architectural terms (5)
See the general comments under 'architectural terms (1).

(14) zetscheur [vanaf de zetscheur in de borstwering], (15) risaliet [boven de middelste raamkozijn van het middenrisaliet], (16) voegwerk -- is this 'mortar' (in a finished wall), or 'pointing' [in the context of 'het voeg- en metselwerk'].

English translation:crack caused by settlement, pointing
Explanation:
Builders/surveyors tend to refer to pointing (as in re-pointing, meaning replacing the mortar between bricks where settlement has occurred). I found various mentions of the word 'middenrisaliet' on the web, but no English translation. Once you see the pictures, maybe you will be able to paraphrase what it is.
