Bay windows are often considered to be a focal point of a home. Letting in large amounts of natural light, adding an inviting space in a home, and providing a beautiful focal feature are the best assets of bay windows. When you have problems with windows in your home it is often due to sagging walls and foundations. While this is scary enough for normal windows, issues with bay windows often present more pressing issues due to their large size and weight. At Anglin’s Foundation & Repairs, we have been helping homeowners repair their bay windows since 1930. We are the window repair contractor that you can count on to repair your issue correctly the first time, every time.
The first thing that needs to be determined when you are having issues with your bay window is whether or not there are problems with your foundation. Sagging window frames and jammed windows are often the result of settlement problems. When a home settles, extensive weight is put upon the framework of the house. This weight causes windows and doors to become jammed or to not open and close properly, and it can also cause windows to sag. Bay windows are often set to “jut out” from the home. This means that extra weight caused by a foundation settling will begin to collapse the framework of a home, thereby causing windows (especially large bay windows that extend from the main framework) to bind and sag.
If your bay window shows signs of damage, sagging, or is stuck in place, please contact Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs right away. Our experienced contractors will provide a thorough evaluation of your home to determine the cause of your structural issues, and we will provide a free estimate after the evaluation.

Over time, windows and doors may become more and more difficult to open. While some minor sticking of windows and doors may be caused by heat and humidity changes throughout the year, major sticking is something to be concerned with. Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs is the trusted local foundation repair company offering professional services for window repair. Our foundation specialists offer Georgia homeowners solutions that repair foundation issues that affect windows.
Common signs of sticking windows and doors that need a professional consultation are when windows require significant force to be opened and closed. Windows that do not close properly have cracks around the corners of the window openings, or windows that are out of their frames need professional attention. Windows often become stuck, difficult to open or close, or have cracks due to structural problems. These problems are often a result of sagging walls and settling foundations. Over time, home foundations can shift due to erosion or structural issues within the home, which can cause windows to malfunction, become damaged, and need repair. When a foundation settles, the structural framing of a home will begin to collapse causing the windows to bind.
Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs can help those homeowners who have windows or doors that are jammed due to home settling and foundation problems. Our experienced contactors will restore the home’s foundation by installing any necessary framing support. We have been a trusted source for foundation repairs since 1930, and we promise what we do and do what we promise. Call us today with any of your window or foundation repair needs.
