From OP To Mr Benick

Hello,
Thanks for help and info. Appreciate it.
House is outside of Boston
Only renovation was new siding (wood horiz. clapboards) put on directly over the existing T1-11 siding year-before-last Could this have caused ? How ?
Last winter was fairly normal; some snow of course on roof, but nothing unusual.
Foundation is concrete.
Heat is hot air via ducts. No wood or pellet stove
No new furniture.
No unusual work on outside of house other than siding last year.
Thanks, Bob -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Type of basement or foundation??? Area of country??? unusually cold or wet winter???Heavy snow load on roof???

If the siding was installed by hand with hammer and nails instead of a nail gun it may have caused it...As could several men on ladders leaning on the wall or attaching staging to the wall with the weight of several guys on it...Just add some drywall screws to the area and repair the crack and I doubt it will come back...Hope that helps....
