There are a wide variety of problems that indicate your home may be experiencing foundation problems. One common sign is sticking or stuck windows and doors. Sometimes, sticking windows and doors are just a sign of increased heat and humidity. However, more often than not, they are signs that your home’s foundation may be settling unevenly. Our experienced technicians at Adams Foundation Repair can help you identify the cause of your problem and craft a customized solution for repair and correction.
What Causes Sticking Doors & Windows?
Sticking doors and windows are caused by a shift in the foundation or uneven settling. Most often this is a result of changing soil conditions underneath and around your home’s foundation. If one part of your home settles more than another, it can twist or skew the force exerted on a window or door frame, causing the window or door to stick or be difficult to close.
Do I Need to Fix This?
A sticking window or door may seem like a frustrating inconvenience. However, it can be a symptom of a much deeper problem that your home may be facing. If not addressed properly, a shifting foundation can, over time, lead to serious structural damage and may even make a home uninhabitable. To avoid costly repairs, it is best to address a shifting foundation as soon as possible.
Our Sticking Doors & Windows Solution
There are two primary solutions for a shifting foundation as indicated by sticking windows or doors:
- Helical piers
- Push piers
Both solutions provide a cost-effective means of supporting and lifting your home’s foundation to its original level. In either case, a durable steel pier is driven deep into stable soil strata and anchored to your home’s foundation so that it will be stable for years to come.
