Help with Stairs

my house was built in 1927 and the interior stair case is pulling away from the outside plaster wall,revealing the old cotton batting insulation. We have lived here for 12 years now and it has been getting worse and worse. The stairs creak very badly also. What can we do to fix this?

Re: Help with Stairs

you have to get at the stringer attached to the wall from the under side and re-fasten it so its tight to the wall again either with spikes or long screws
