During the course of the other company installing interior reinforcement walls, there was collapse of several of the brick foundation walls. What we showed up to was a complete disaster!
The other contractor was visibly in way over his ability and the client’s home was in serious peril. We were retained by the homeowner and proceed to have proper supports put in place, safety fence installed and started to work on Engineering for replacement of the entire foundation as we had originally recommended.
The client continued on with a major renovation to the remainder of the house including an addition on the rear of the house. Once again the importance for client’s to ensure that they have a reliable and experienced contractor in place to perform their work is illustrated.
