Leaning Structures & Chimney Repair
Many different structures can lean over time. These include brick or stone chimneys, brick mailboxes, columns, headstones, and more. The experts at A-1 have experience correcting issues with each of these types of problems. Of course, each one requires a specific solution, but you can count on the technicians at A-1 to do it right and in such a way to last years to come.
Brackets are bolted to the chimney footer. Then steel pipe is driven into the ground with a hydraulic piston.
Once the steel pipe reaches bedrock, or can't be pushed any further, it lifts the chimney back into place. At this point, it is locked off.
Most of our processes lift the structure using hydraulic, or mechanical jacks, or, in more severe cases, using piers driven into the ground. Once the structure is lifted back into place, A-1 will typically inject the void underneath with a leveling compound to give it a new, solid base.

Everything was great. The process threw out some concrete into and around my mailbox. It was left behind. No major problem but should have been fixed.
