Good afternoon everyone. I am currently an InterNACHI student in the process of becoming a certified home inspector. I am currently on the foundation walls course and I am reading about differential settlement and one potential sign of that being sticking doors.
It got me thinking, the spare bedroom at my moms house has a sticking door at the top, it doesn’t fully shut. If I was to try to determine if this was due to foundation settlement (or if I was to eventually encounter this same situation at a home I was inspecting in the future) what would be the steps I would do in order to determine what was causing it?
Not sure if this makes a big difference, but my mom lives in south FL, don’t know if foundation settlement would really be a big issue down here?
I appreciate your time and expertise.
