My house is 18 years old and recently, a thin, long crack that spans the length of the crested center point of my vaulted ceiling has appeared. And in the past month, there’s at least one place where part of the vaulted ceiling is ever so slightly separating from the kitchen wall.
Any ideas on what might be causing this? Is it just old drywall cracking and/or could the wooden attic beams have anything to do with this, such as shrinking? I am most concerned about the separating. Anyway to stop this from going further?
