Doors and windows that stick are not only annoying, they can be a sign of a deeper problem. If you have difficulty opening and closing your windows or doors, your home or business may be experiencing foundation issues. Foundation settlement can cause certain parts of your home or sink. When this happens, door frames and window frames can become uneven, making it much harder to move the doors or windows in their frames. The opposite can happen as well. Windows and doors may have gaps and spaces between them and their frames due to foundation movement. Sticking doors & windows is one of the easiest ways to tell that you may have foundation problems.
If you notice that your home or business has this problem, make sure to give us a call. We can provide you with a free in-home inspection and estimate. We can tell you exactly what is causing your problems and how we can help if there is a foundation issue. More often than not, if it is a foundation issue, sticking doors & windows can be fixed with underpinning.
If your foundation has begun to settle, our piers will lift it back into its original position. These piers will be driven into stable, load-bearing soils and the foundation will be transferred onto the piers. From there, the foundation can be lifted and supported. With the foundation fixed, windows and doors will be fixed as well as the frames move back into their proper positions. No more doors and windows that are stuck and hard to open and close. Give us a call today so we can schedule your appointment for an inspection and estimate.
