* Can't I just jack the building myself with a bottle Jack?
Know the correct location layout and load points to jack are critical to not doing damage to the building during jacking. Sometimes spot jacking can be done, but it’s much riskier that an entire building lift. Bottle jacks have many good uses, but if you don't know how to use them correctly in the work you’re doing there could be HUGE consequences.
* Why can't I just use lally column jacks to temp suport my house while I replace a cracked foundation wall?
There are many types of lally column supports and may types of material they are made out of. Lally column jacks are usually used in two ways. To support main carrying beams and are incorporated into the original foundation design as a permanent item or bought after the fact to support a sagging main carrying beam. The jacks we use are specifically for temporary use and hold far more weight than a regular lally column jack due to the type of application we use them for, like holding up entire floors of houses to replace a foundation wall.
* Why should I use a professional to Jack or repair or replace my foundation?
Anyone can jack or repair a foundation. It takes a professional with years of training, in design and field experience given you specific application to do the repair correctly without causing further damage or having issues with the work over time. A & H Properties has individuals who have had specialized training and experience in Geotechnical Engineering and deep foundation design, Civil Engineering and composition of soils and soil loading, Structural engineering and concrete composition and structure designs.
* Why should I hire this company for septic installation when there are several out there.
We take the time to work with our clients and there specific location on what type of system might be a good fit for their area. We have a good relationship with site evaluators that listen to what we have found in soil investigation or the lay out of the land that could aid them in their type of design to keep the cost down for our clients and give them the best quality outcome. We are certified in Maine to inspect septic systems and install them. Some of our staff has had extensive site evaluator soil evaluation and training in the laws in main governing the design and installation of the system. We try to be conservative with the work that needs to be done. If your tank is in good condition why replace it if the leach field is what's failing.
* Wouldn't it be cheaper if I started the work or did parts of the work.
It might be cheaper for you up front but it won't help you in the long term. There are certain ways things need to be done or prepped before installation or repair work needs to be completed. Almost all professionals stay up to date on new techniques and code compliance ways to install items in their field of work. If something is prepped wrong or missed in the entire scope of work, not only is the contractor held accountable he may have missed what someone else has done and compromised the longevity of the repair or installation. Your professional contractor could also save you money with quicker ways to do things or not needing to do some of the work you may think needs to be done to complete the work.
