A couple of years ago I had a wall removed between the dinning room and
the kitchen. The beams go from back to front in the house and the wall
that removed went in the same direction so it wasnt supporting and
building said it was ok. In the last 6 months I have noticed the
1) Crack all the way down there stairs either side. Between the stairs
and the wall, not very big just 2-3mm.
2) I can see the beams in the ceiling downstairs throught the
plasterboards, they have lowered by roughly the same amount. I was
just thinking of sanding them down, but has anyone else got any ideas.
3) It is very noisy downstairs when someone is upstairs, you can see
the ceiling bend when someone stamps or jumps upstairs.
4) I have looked at one of the beams upstairs and there is split along
the beam. Others seem ok either side of it.
Should I be worried, start paying for engineers to check. Or just go a
head and sand down beams and fill stairs. Is there away of limiting
the noise as well.
thanks for any advice.
