What Causes Separated Counters and Cabinets?

Separated counters and cabinets can be caused by anything from technical mistakes to environmental issues. Some of these issues include:

  • Wall-Mounted cabinets that aren’t properly secured to the wall – These could fall on someone and cause serious injury
  • Lack of hardware used to secure the cabinet together
  • Foundation Settlement shifting the home and its supports, affecting all hanging components inside the home
  • Excess moisture or lack of moisture causing the supporting wall to shrink and expand
  • Earthquake tremors cause the home to shift and move, weakening supports of hanging objects

All of these issues are serious and should be addressed by a professional. If you have children in the home, it is especially dangerous to have unsecured or shifting cabinets, as children like to hang on doors and can be crushed by the weight of the cabinet or countertop.
