Question popping and creeking : (

Hi there. I have a one story house that was built in 1990. It is brick veneer and has high ceilings with no attic or basement. My only problem with this house is that it "creeks" and "pops" a lot in the early morning and when it starts to get dark. The temperature change really gets to it. This bothers me because it can get loud and can sometimes wake you up. There are about 12 "roof vents" all around the house and was wondering how I can fix this. Thank you. Frank

New houses are built using new-growth material that is not as dimensionally stable as old-growth lumber used in teh good old days. Your framing will expand and contract with the temperature, and if your builder did not allow the material to dry properly, it will be even more noticeable.
