Problem: An engineer was provided to evaluate Quynh’s historic home which needed structural repairs to joists, main beams, and installing of sufficient lally columns. The engineer reported the home would become structurally unsound and potentially dangerous if left unattended. 

installing sufficient lally columns to your historic home's foundation is essential for longevity

Solution: Perry Brothers Construction provided an analysis report on the house to identify weak points, installed permanent lally columns, sistered all cracked joists, replaced old electrical wires, and added new lighting to brighten up the basement. The labor included sistering all defective joists and main beams with LVLs(laminated veneer lumber), while also digging and pouring new structural steel lally columns per code. Lally columns add extra support and strength to a home’s structure by transferring the load from one point to another. The project manager and on-site team provided precision carpentry skills and kept the work site clean throughout the job. All structural work was inspected and approved by the engineer and the Haverhill building department.
