You turn your door’s handle, but the door doesn’t budge. You’re absolutely sure that you left your door unlocked, but now you’re standing on your porch. You’ve locked yourself out of your house, or have you? You cannot get the door open for the life of you, so you find your hidden key. Even the key will not open your door! You try once more, pressing with all your body weight against the door. Finally, it pops open! If this has happened to you, you have a sticking door. Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services is your misaligned door solution in Youngstown. Never “lock yourself out” again.
Often times, misaligned doors go without much consideration. Homeowners simply think their door lock is the problem or they try to fix a door gap. While this may provide a short-term solution, the problem is much more serious. You will continue to face a sticking door (and windows) until you attack the real problem: your foundation.
Ground movement, drainage problems, or poor construction can all be the causes of a settling foundation. This settling foundation causes your home to shift. This shifting causes your door and door frame to be misaligned. Ask yourself these questions:
