Customer Question

I purchased my town home 2 years ago. The home was built 4 years ago. Last summer, I was made aware of cracks in the 3 rooms I had wood floors installed and immediately got my camera out to take pictures. There is a crack in the garage that leads up into the dining room and the crack in the tile of the dining room is spreading which tells me there is serious problem. I discovered there is also a crack in one of the walls upstairs. I did some research to determine what might be causing the cracking and discovered this can be a very serious problem and that I should have it checked out by a structural engineer ASAP. To make sure it wasn't just my town home, I visited with the owners of the adjoining town homes and they verified my suspicions that this is not just my problem. I want a reputable company to come check it out but I'm not sure whom I should call. Can you help me?
