    Creaking/Cracking ceilings

    We did in the end and have just had the report. Their view is that is it is the drying out of the joists and they are uneven and a resilient layer would reduce/resolve the issue. The developer I think will just ignore the report or say they don't have to do anything and the warranty holder will...

    Creaking/Cracking ceilings

    I did contact the above and they said they couldn't help as it wasn't their area of expertise as they didn't think it was a structural issue.

    Creaking/Cracking ceilings

    Hi sorry for the delay in response. We have/had a number of snagging issues and after 5 months the Developer told us he wasn't going to do anything else so we wrote to the warranty holder and they told him he had to sort stuff out. The Developer came out and listened to floors, agreed there...

    Creaking/Cracking ceilings

    Hi Just bumping this question. Our Warranty holder Homeproof (Aedis) have now changed their minds and said that the ceiling making loud cracking noises when someone walks upstairs is not covered under their warranty and they and the builder are not liable as they are happy it was to building...

    Creaking/Cracking ceilings

    Hi I have seen the threads below on this issue and I wondered if anyone had any success with a resilient layer? Our developer re-screwed the floors, tightened/checked noggins. It has reduced the creaking upstairs but made no difference to cracking noise downstairs, the developer doesn't want to...
