House cracking and popping
I bought a completely rehabbed split-level home at the end of July 2009. Soon as I moved in I began to hear cracking and popping noises especially at night. I first noticed a crack forming on the ceiling right above the foyer in the house. Now 4 months later I have found that the baseboards in the basement and framing around the windows and doors are pulling apart at joints. Also just noticed a crack in the wall in the garage. One of the spaces in the baseboard is about 1/4 inch. Do I wait until after winter to fix? Do I have a major problem with foundation? The existing backdoor was replaced with a wall and back entrance was moved to right where a wall was partially removed to put in a sliding door. Village inspector wondered if supporting wall was compromised.
I only hear a few pops and crackling sounds now. Please I need help.
