Windows and doors sticking?

That’s a great question but is difficult to answer without some additional information.  Is the second company planning to install the posts under the joists and against the outside wall?  If not, it seems they are attacking different problems.  Sounds like one company might be right and the other wrong (or both wrong ).  A better course of action would be to have an engineer prepare a repair plan and let those repair companies price the same scope of work.  This will help you compare “apples to apples.”
