Question DetailsAsked on 9/13/2017

We have a large ceiling crack, multiple smaller ceiling cracks in same room as well as a crack down the wall

We are in an older home and there are many, many cracks. However in the dining room there is one really large one that runs halfway across the ceiling with a matching wall crack. In the same room there are smaller cracks that run in different directions across the ceiling. There appears to be a small "lump" that runs along the crack (not sure if it passes for bowing?). It runs to a partial wall (that used to be a whole wall at least 20 years ago) that holds two sets of upper cabinets and it seems to be pulling away a bit as well. Also, my bedroom is directly above this crack (my bed is right above it) and both my husband and I have heard popping noises but we just figured it was cold weather. Our upstairs bathroom door wont close without effort as it scrapes across the floor. Any insight is helpful - if we do need to call someone, do we call an engineer?

Structural Engineer is the Search the List category for this - and given the number and type you are talking about and the popping sounds, I would say sooner rather than later.
