Homes can settle up to 10 years after they are built and create a need for window repair. If there is damage to your windows from settling, we can work with you to come up with a repair plan.
After construction, homes can settle due to soil issues. Improper soil backfill, the type of soil on which your home was built, conditions below ground, tree root intrusions, and other issues can cause your home to settle down to the ground.
Settling can cause a variety of issues, ranging from minor annoyances to serious problems. Windows are potentially greatly impacted by home settling. The damage caused by home settling easily leads to the need for window repair.
Signs of Settling Which Necessitate Window Repair
Home settling is often apparent where your windows are concerned. Some window-related signs your home is settling include:
- Interior cracks around window sills and frames
- Sticking windows, making them difficult to open and shut
- Gaps around windows visible outside
- Cracks in a window sill or frame
- Exterior window fascia or trim pulling away from the walls
- Interior trim around windows is popping off
- Window frame is lopsided and no longer squared
These issues can all be caused by an uneven foundation. Severe settling can cause structural damage to the home and its foundation and affect many elements of your home as well as the windows.
