Sticking Doors in South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska

Common Foundation Problemssigns of foundation failure in south dakota

During the hot summer months, homeowners often experience sticking and hard to open doors. When homeowners first experience sticking doors and windows, their first worry is humidity. It is a common misconception that humidity is the sole cause of sticking doors, leaving many homeowners to attempt to fix the problem themselves instead of searching for the real issue. However, sticking doors are often a sign of a much more severe problem with your foundation. If you’re experiencing sticking doors, you may also notice diagonal cracks at the corner of your doors or sagging floors. It is also common for there to be wedge-like gaps at the tops or sides of your doors and windows. As these problems usually point to more significant foundation issues, it’s important to get them checked out by an experienced foundation repair company such as Rapid Foundation Repair. We are your sticking doors experts in the South Dakota region.

A common cause of sticking doors is having a settling foundation. When the soil around your home gets wet, it expands, pushing in on your walls and causing cracks and sticking doors, among other problems. This pressure can be reversed with products such as helical tiebacks and anchors. If you’ve come across doors or windows in your home that stick, call Rapid Foundation Repair to come to take a look.
