Bought this stick-built house in '02 - built in '85. Inspector gave it a clean bill of heath, but needed some cosmetic work. Ranch style. Full basement. Replaced roof after hail damage 2 years ago. When the roofers walked on the roof the ceiling and canister lights shook so bad some bulbs actually fell out...the kitchen cabinets shook so bad I had to remove the china. They were not walking hard or stomping around!
The house pops so loud it wakes us up from a sound sleep. And the floors creek when CAT walks across.
When we close the garage door into the house (downstairs) or the three sets of double doors (metal) the whole house shakes. I can push on the wall next to the garage door and it shakes. I am a small woman.
Are we in a house of cards? It feels like it. What can we do if anything?
