Any ideas why I am hearing popping sounds in the house? They seem to be coming from outside during different times of the day. Hearing them for years but no problems have shown up. Also, my floors have started to snap, crackle, popping sounds throughout the house. Could the 2 be related? Any ideas. Really quite baffled

Just some background discussion for this thread. Please feel free to add input, corrections, etc. And as I said, house noises drive me crazy as well :) Thanks in advance!

Hello Sharlene and K2,

Sharlene, can you give a brief discription of the building materials used in the construction of your house? (wood or metal framed, truss floor, engineered wood system, or solid 2x, siding or veneer, hardwood floors, type of subfloor if you know, etc.)

Am I feeling dumb. I'll answer the best I can. Wood frame, floor trusses, brick front with vinyl siding remaining 3 sides I'm taking a guess at engineered versus solid 2x but not completely certain (which ever cost less only because builders will use the cheapest things they can get their hands on, ours included. Some hardwood, some tile, some carpet. The subfloor is your typical run of the mill plywood??? There is a luan over the sub before hardwood was put down (we did that). Rock board under the tile as it was installed on 2nd story. The house is 3 stories rear and sides, 1st floor underground at front level. The house is 8 years old in a southern climate (N. Carolina) I hope I answered your questions. Thanks so much for your response.
