Hi there. I have a one story house that was built in 1990. It is brick veneer and has high ceilings with no attic or basement. My only problem with this house is that it "creeks" and "pops" a lot in the early morning and when it starts to get dark. The temperature change really gets to it. This bothers me because it can get loud and can sometimes wake you up. There are about 12 "roof vents" all around the house and was wondering how I can fix this. Thank you. Frank

You provide no information about what kind of roof this is and whether the noise comes from the roof material or the framing.

This is a common complaint with metal so I surmiose you have either metal roofing or metal framing or both.
