Stuck Foundation Door

Why Foundation Cracks Cause Sticking Doors in Rochester, NY

Characteristics of different soils can cause foundations to settle inconsistently. Rugged soil conditions cause parts of foundations or slabs to crack or shift, while other areas remain in place. As shifting soil due to climate, weather or other conditions has various effects on foundations, the subflooring and other surfaces above them can bend and twist. Doors and floors can become asymmetrical, leading to sticking or unevenness.

Drywall attached to wooden frames is not flexible but prone to cracking, especially in corners of doors. When a home has a stone or brick exterior, its solid foundation will likely have cracks in the upper masonry surfaces due to this lack of flexibility.

Why Great Lakes For Sticking Doors in Geneseo, NY?

A more common foundation problem related to sticking doors is the weakening or destruction of crawl space support and settlements. When the crawl space support begins to move or deteriorate, a domino effect occurs, bending or cracking doors, and causing the floor to sag or fall. These foundation issues are usually related to the settlement, and Great Lakes Waterproofing will install either a crawl space jack or a foundation pier, depending on your home's specific situation.
