As a homeowner, it’s important to check your home for any signs of damage, especially as the home ages. You don’t want to risk your investment becoming compromised because of damage that could have been avoided. That being said, if you’ve started to notice sticking doors or windows in your home, you should call one of our professionals to ensure that your home is in good condition. Sometimes humidity can affect how doors and windows fit, but it could also be an indicator of serious foundation damage. Continue reading below to learn more about how sticking doors/windows happen and how they can be fixed.

What Causes Doors & Windows to Stick?

Many times, the soil beneath your home contracts and expands due to changing moisture levels over time. This contributes to your home’s movement as well, since the soil is underneath your foundation. This means your home will eventually shift and settle over time. If one part of your home starts to settle more than another, it can put too much pressure on one area of your home, such as your doors and windows. This makes them hard to operate.Window surrounded by cracks in a home
