Hi everyone! I'm a new home owner and live in WI where we have had one of the worst winters - it will be -45 degrees one night and 25 degrees the next. This is what I was blaming our problem on, but I want to make sure I'm not missing something that could be a hazard.
When we bought our house we had a structural engineer come out after the house inspector was worried that the walls were bowing out. Structural engineer said it was all fine, just how the foundation was laid. This was in July 2013.
My husband and I just noticed that the kitchen wall is tilted out and it is definitely new. The sealant between the cupboard and the wall is cracked, as if the wall pulled away from the cupboards. Is this just because of the frigid cold and nothing to worry about or is this a structural defect that needs to be looked at?
