- Brick and stone chimneys weigh between 6 to 7 tons, so their construction must be carefully planned and performed, from the foundation in the basement to the mortar crown on the chimney top.
- Distressed chimneys need immediate attention, because if any of the masonry units have loosened, they can be responsible for devastating personal injuries and property damages.
Retaining Wall Construction and Repair masonry stone
Residential retaining walls are meant to prevent the erosion or collapse of banks of soil that abut or support residential properties. The size and type of retaining wall that you will need will always be dependent upon the mass of the soil that needs to be retained. Retaining walls can be integrated into your landscaping design and can even be constructed with built-in benches and fountains. Terraced walls can also be built, if you are working with a steep gradient. Terraced designs allow you to make the most of every usable square foot of your property, and they are ideal for patios and gardens.
- Smaller, gravity-style retaining walls are relatively simple to construct, because they are typically only between 3 to 4 feet tall. Larger cantilever and anchored walls, however, often require the participation of an engineer, because of the loads that these barriers will be expected to retain.
