Almost Completed

Rich, the owner of Calculus Foundations arrived around noon on Wednesday and gave the order to the crew that this job must be completed TODAY! The crew was not happy as they had to wait almost 3 hours for the inspector to approve the application of material on the outside of the basement wall and the new drain installed at the footer.
Preparation for "tuck pointing" the brick.
Not only on two sides of the house did area's of the brick need some mortar joints repaired, but also on the garage.


There were also 2 "bubblers" needing installed at the downspouts to direct the rainwater away from the new concrete.
Installation of one of two "Bubblers"
The one above, installed at the rear of the house, was easy to put in. But the one at the front of the house was very hard. Because of the huge Maple tree just 30 feet away, there were many roots that needed to be cut for the trench.

The end of the day on Wednesday left just an hours worth of work in the basement that needed to be done. Rich told me he would have Les come back tomorrow to finish, but all the outside work is completed.

Tomorrow the cement company will arrive early to replace the porch and drive way.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
