What causes this issue. If I factory reset my phone will I lose root? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

No you will not loose root access if you do a factory reset. You'll probably need to download supersu again though.
Have you removed or frozen any apps since you rooted? Or are you still experiencing issues since the botched root attempt? If you did delete system files without a backup, a factory reset won't replace or fix them. It's possible a factory reset might fix some force closings, and worth a shot.
So what's happening when you experiencing these force closes? What tasks are you performing when the error occurs? Are you using any home replacement apps, or launchers like Apex, Nova, Go Launcher, etc....? I was experiencing system UI force closes with apex until I wiped apex's data and cache.
