The integrity of a home
starts from the foundation up.
17th, 18th & 19th century colonial home treasures are built upon, depend upon, and will only continue upon, a good foundation.
Foundation repair is an essential part of many older New England homes - due to age, weather, lack of maintenance or an accident. Many of these homes are in need of major repair simply because of their age, and not only are they no longer structurally sound, but they have air flowing, and in some cases, water flowing, right through the foundation walls.
Although it may not be the most favorable spot of any colonial New England home owner to give his or her attention to, the cellar of your antique home is of utmost importance to preserving the integrity and longevity of these homes and in establishing improved energy efficiency.
Andrew will work to match your existing foundation so that the integrity of your home is maintained. Repointing your old stone foundation will also decrease or eliminate the cold air from flowing into your basement, providing you with a more energy efficient home.
The Mended Wall also provides necessary excavation services during projects to ensure your foundation is in good shape going forward. Water needs to go somewhere as it runs off the room of your structure. If changing the slope of the land surrounding your foundation is a required aspect of your colonial foundation restoration project, Andrew is equipped to take care of it.
All repairs made to modern day specifications.
With modern updates that include supporting individual framed walls or entire structures while your rubble foundation is repaired, Andrew can preserve, renovate, repair or reconstruct your stone, rubble or granite foundation and provide you with an energy efficient and effective stone foundation that maintains the structural integrity of your home.
With this, the home owner achieves the desired / required outcome of updating the home's foundation while preserving the historical integrity of the Early-American home, while providing significant cost-savings on the repair process and with an end result of improved energy efficiency.
The Mended Wall can also provide complete old stone foundation removal and preparation for a new concrete foundation. With associates in all areas of expertise required for this modernization of your colonial home, The Mended Wall is the only call you have to make.
