2013 Garage Foundation and Building Repairs

The community garage has very visible foundation issues on the West and North side. In April 2017 the community voted to repair the foundation and brick. Inside the big garage the floor slopes downward in the Northwest corner where the foundation slab has dropped the most. It shows in the measurement on the engineering report that is included on this webpage.

Foundation Repair

For the community garage foundation repair project we obtained an engineering report to identify the best solution for foundation repair to the garage, because each foundation repair company recommended a different number of piers to install. To properly stabilize the foundation it is recommended to install a combined total of 8 piers on the West and North side. The Association is in the process of getting new estimates, based on the engineering report, from the foundation repair companies. The Association is also in the process of getting estimates for brick repair.



Correction of Destabiizing Conditions

To prevent more problems to the foundation it is recommended that we install rain gutters at the back if the garage, and have it so the water runs off into the storm drain. It is recommended that once the piers have been installed that we do not use mud-jacking or foam to try to level out the inside of the Northwest corner. If we used mud-jacking or foam to raise the corner immediately it would not allow any further settling of the foundation and end up causing more damage.

Brick Repair

The brick repair is also important to prevent water leaks, vermin and insect infestation, and loss of the property value. We have been advised to allow 3 to 4 weeks after foundation repair to allow the slab foundation to settle before repairing the bricks. The brick repair scope at this point involves remounting the bricks to the garage wall, replacing the broken bricks, and repairing the mortar.

Landscape Repair

The foundation repair is going to be invasive, especially on the West side of the garage. The shrubs may not survive, and may need to be replaced when the repair is done. The link to the engineering report is included in this section.
