expansion and contraction of exterior walls
I have a problem with some exterior walls in my home. The first is in the kitchen, the exterior wall moves when the temp drops outside. I end up with a 1/2 gap behind my countertop. The second is a seam in the corner of my bedroom that will open up when the temp cools off outside. In spring both areas return to normal. I would like to put tile in my kitchen but am concerned that the tile will crack with the movement. What is the cause of this and is there a way to repair this situation so it doesn't happen?
