When people hear the phrase “structural alteration”, they tend to begin to panic a bit. This is understandable – it does sound sort of like we’re going to be ripping out the “skeleton” of your home and leaving you with nothing in return. In reality, of course, this could not be farther from the truth! In order to help reinforce your home’s foundation, sometimes various structural alterations must be made. The process is conducted in several stages.
First of all, our team will take a look at your basement and determine the relevant issues that need to be addressed. This is where the specific foundation support problems and damages are examined, and a plan of action created to help develop the best plan of attack in order to address everything that needs to be fixed.
In the planning stage, our team develops the best approach for addressing your home’s structural issues. This includes things like obtaining the necessary permits, the necessary equipment, and determining the necessary labor. The planning stage also includes identifying various potential hazards and developing a plan of action that diminishes the risk.
Once the plan has been created, the team can move on to the design of the structural alterations process. This includes a drawing or mock up of how the alterations will be carried out. This serves to keep everyone on the same page.
Finally, it is time to begin the actual alterations process! In this stage, the structural alterations are installed and you are left with your new, fully supported and reinforced, basement. This includes the installation of any shoring or other reinforcements you might need, as well as remedying the issues that were identified during the investigation phase.
