Jammed door? Sticky Window? We're here to help!

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020 by Marketing TFG


Do you often find yourself giving your front door a bit of a push in order to lock it? Does your window become sticky or jammed at times?

These small but significant issues are all telltale of what could be a Settling Foundation or Crawl Space Supports that have settled. Although these signs may not seem too alarming if ignored, they could potentially lead to severe damages to your home down the line. 

Settling Foundation - When building your home, soil characteristics vary so the settlement of your foundation is never uniform. This can cause sections of your foundation to crack and shift while other sections remain unharmed.

  • We deal with these types of issues by installing Foundation Piers. This method prevents further settling and your doors, locks, and windows may return to normal functionality.

Sinking Crawlspace - Many poorly designed crawlspaces have either too few support columns, rotting floor joists, or weak supporting soils causing your supports to sink.

  • We recommend installing Crawl Space Support Jacks. After excavating a hole for each support, our Crawl Space supports will stop the floor from sinking or sagging. 

At The Foundation Guys Inc., we offer free, no-obligation foundation repair quotes within our Ontario service area. Each free quote includes an on-site inspection, personal consultation, and written estimate.
