Causes of Doors and Windows Sticking

Pounding on windows or cutting the bottom of doors does not resolve the real issues with your home. Often times the cause of sticking doors and windows Virginia is more to do with foundation repair problems and not humidity. If your home has bad drainage, ground movement, or poor construction these may be the causes of your issues. Most times, people will start to notice the doors and windows that used to open and close start to stick or become harder to open. Another sign that you may have foundation problems is you’ll notice stair step cracks near corners or doors and windows if your home is brick. As your home settles these wall cracks will become wider and wider.
