A Foundation Within a Foundation: Highland Park, NJ

This home’s 1910 poured walls were beginning to spall and deteriorate. Due to the balloon framing, the engineer designed a new footing and wall within the existing footprint. Concrete restoration compounds were applied to strengthen and seal the foundation due to its poor condition prior to any other work. Extensive shoring and bracing were required to hold the existing walls in place while new footings were dug and poured.
