I have a new house that is barely a year old. We have a huge crack on both sides of the doorway to our dining room. That crack is almost 2 ft in length and the top part is moving to the right. We showed this to the builder when he came in to fix our cracked tiles and he replied that he has never seen anything like it. He did not make me feel better.
To make things worse, the wooden floors are sinking. In some areas it is as much as over 1/4 inch. I was beginning to worry, so I took a look under my house. I saw that my two story house with lots of tiles, stone work in the masterbath, and heavy cement counter tops in the kitchen is being supported by 4x4 without reenforcements! IS THIS NORMAL????? I live in the Pacific Northwest, we have earthquakes here. The 4x4 is just resting on the cement lines with no bolts anywhere. The center of my 2,150 ft house is sinking! WHAT AM I TO DO??? When you pay big $$$$ for a house you don't expect it to mess up this bad. I am scared that this house will fall down. Everyday I see more cracks and more sinking.
I am going crazy!!! Please help, I am getting the run around by everyone including the builder!
