I am new here and am looking for some insight. I just purchased a home 2 months ago, It is about a year old and we are the first owners. It is a two story farmhouse colonial and has an unfinished basement. I noticed a diagonal vertical crack on one of the interior walls in the basement. Since we have been there I have counted 8 more cracks. Some are near the corner of the window which I know are common and others in the walls. None are horizontal. I also noticed a crack on the floor. We have been there exactly two months.
Well this morning the house was making such loud popping and cracking noises. I went to investigate and there is a new crack on the floor in the basement. Also some of the the baseboards look like have pulled away slightly from the wall, I believe the nails were popping perhaps. I know houses settle in the first couple years I think but I am worried that this is excessive cracking and there is something wrong with the foundation. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
