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.

We purchased a house that the garage floor had sunk about 3 inches due to the original contractor improperly compacting the ground before pouring the floor. A1 can out and fix the issue! They did a great job by filling the voids under the floor and then lifting the entire 3 car garage floor another 3 inches back to its original position. They keep me informed on when they would arrive and after the job they cleaned up after themselves. Since then we had them out 2 other time for small issues and we always got quick professional service. If you have ever priced the cost of pouring concrete, A1 is a lot cheaper to fix issues. I would recommend them. Please keep in mind that their services are weather dependent so long periods of rain of winter months will delay them.
