creaks and groans

In reply to Where can I get reliable settlement info? by Tom on May 6th, 2003 11:21 AM [Go to top of thread]

The sounds comming from your framing is more likely caused by changes in temperature than settling. Aside from that, if you have actual cracks in the foundation, those would be of greater concern if there is also displacement. A vertical or horizontal shifting of one plane from the other would indicate forces acting on the foundation wall or soil failure. If you have cracks that appear to have displacement have them evaluated by an engineer or professional contractor with knowlege in foundations.
