Specializing In Stone foundation Restoration & Masonry Repairs
Do you have cracks in your stone foundation? If so we can help you repair them by carefully removing damaged sections and replacing the mortar or cement with new high strength cements.
Often foundations will shift and move over time causing the stones to shift. By resetting the stones in the correct manner you can secure your foundation for generations to come. Foundation stone wall construction is different than your average decorative stone wall.
When building or repairing stone foundation walls you have several things to consider. First is the foundation base which is actually a big retaining wall that acts as a footprint for your foundation.These walls typically are four feet below grade to prevent heaving. Resting on the foundation base is three ft. of free standing stone and often brick foundations.
We have experience in all aspects of foundation repairs from rebuilding complete wall sections to corner repairs and preventative maintenance which includes
re-pointing and stone or brick setting. When stones shift in the foundation base that's when you see movement above in the free standing foundation sections. Careful repairs and correct stone building practices can stabilize your home for years to come.
