Will rendering a gable end wall cure the dampness in the internal upstairs rooms? Or will it just make the whole thing worse?

I live on the end of a victorian terrace and have a large gable end wall, the three rooms on that side of the house have damp walls (more so in winter), Ive had a builder look at my roof and he says there is nothing wrong with the tiles or the layer underneath. Could it be rain water soaking into the bricks and if so would render be a solution or perhaps one of those paint on products instead?
