Thursday, May 24th, 2018 by Brittney Griffy

Challenge

This 1969 home in Hendersonville TN was giving the family a lot of anxiety. The family has been in the home for over 20 years and plans to stay there. However, they have noticed cracking and movement in the foundation that is very concerning. Because the project was so serious it was important the home owner had complete confidence in the company completing the work.

The inspection revealed very serious foundation wall failure. The family was very lucky the foundation had not collapsed.

 

Project goals were to permanently stabilize the walls and keep the basement warm and dry.
