Ceiling beam cracking
 
4 Attachment(s)

Hello,

I have a 24'x24' family room with vaulted ceilings. The boxed in beam in the middle highest part of the room is cracked. This happened over the winter and I got some ceiling repair putty and filled in the crack all the way across the beam, sanded it smooth and painted it. Over the past couple months the crack has reappeared. How would I go about fixing this correctly so the crack does not comeback? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a few pictures so you can see it's current state.

Thanks,
Brett

Thanks for the continued advice. The house is a ranch with a full basement. The family room and master bedroom were added on to and there is a crawlspace under those. The family room is off the back corner of the kitchen, down to 2 steps from the rest of house. The crack in the archway is off the other side of the kitchen and there is basement under it. There is an attic but I can't really see any of the beams above the family room when I'm up there. I don't think the two are related. I added some pictures.
