A bad pier in front of a bad wall!
A bad pier in front of a bad wall!
11/8/2015 10:09:34 PM
 Crumbling bricks without mortar.  Bricks, not slumpstone blocks.  Out of plane.  Out of level.  Literally falling apart and stuffed full of plywood shims that are just waiting for the termites to discover them.  No termite shields.  No concrete under the piers-- just a pile of bricks sitting in the mud. 

And that's just the pier!  The wall behind it, which is supposed to be a row of solid, well-mortared bricks, is crumbling, badly put together, missing quite a bit of mortar, out of square, level AND plane, and leaking water from the outside.  Rip it out and re-do it.  This client ran screaming.  NOTE:  The sellers were COMPLETELY unaware of this situation.  A lose-lose situation all around, except my client DIDN'T get stuck with $30K to $40K of unexpected foundation repairs!
