One of the most common signs of foundation settlement is sticking doors or windows. Sticking doors and windows may seem like a petty enough problem, chalked up to humidity or the weather outdoors, but it may actually be a serious problem. When foundations settle, doors and windows become misaligned. The tendency is to fix these problems with a door jamb or other DIY solution, but there could be a serious underlying problem. Matthews Wall Anchor is happy to assess your situation and provide you with a free estimate for the best sticking doors and windows solution.
Foundation settlement happens when the soil under and around your home is poorly compacted and there are varying levels of moisture. It begins to sink and shift, causing your foundation to move with it.

A sinking foundation is easily fixed with the use of Earth Contact Products, “the very best” foundation repair products.
