Sometimes You Need More Than A Band-Aid

Brick Foundation CrackingCuts and scrapes on your skin require the attention of a Band-Aid to help them heal properly. Band-Aids can do a world of good in those situations. However, you’d never consider using a Band-Aid to aid in the healing process of a broken bone or inner organ problem. In more serious situations, more serious measures must be taken for proper healing to occur.

The same concept is true of masonry repair work. If you notice a crack or falling walls in your home or business, a simple cosmetic “Band-Aid” is not enough. In order to properly “heal” or fix your problems with your masonry work it requires a three- step process. Read More

A Welcome To Your Home

Sinking Brick Step Marietta GAHow do you make your home a welcoming place for guests to enter into? Seasonal wreaths are a pretty addition to your entrance. A colorfully painted door or richly stained front door has great curb appeal and makes a statement about your home. Perfectly placed potted plants also give a sense of life, growth and warmth to the front of your home.

One thing that can take away from the welcoming feeling of your home is the appearance of cracked or unstable stoop or sinking, tilting steps. On your steps this can appear as one or multiple steps tilting forward and disconnecting from the other steps. It can also appear as a group of steps cracking or disconnecting from the side supporting walls. Read More

Getting Your Plumb Back

Considerations For Your Business Office Building

Foundation Problems in Commercial Buildings Atlanta GAThere are many benefits to moving your business into an existing older (and even historic) building in Georgia. Customers who enter your building can get the feeling of longevity, stability and nostalgia. Typically, old historic buildings or homes are located in central areas close to town and potential or existing customers. Let’s not forget the landscaping and historical features of an old home that cannot be found in newly constructed buildings. Trees that are over a century are priceless features on older properties.

The benefits of an older business building are many. However, there are some things you will need to consider. Read More

History Is Always In The Making

Anglin's FamilyAnglin’s is proud of our history. We started in 1930 by the O.L. Anglin and Sons as a foundation and masonry repair company. His ambition was to offer a superior masonry service for all types of masonry needs.

All the foundational work had to be done by hand in the 1930s. In the United States, they just experienced the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression began.  In 1930, the average house cost around $7,000 and a gallon of gas was 10 cents. A new car would cost you about $650 and a pair of eye vision glasses cost about $4. Betty Boop and Donald Duck made their debut and the Empire State Building was completed. The styles of the 1930’s were presented in the issues of Good Housekeeping magazine. Read More

The Wise Man

Marietta GA Home Foundation ContractorsHave you ever heard that children’s song about the wise and foolish man? It talks about the wise and foolish builders of a house. The wise man builds his house upon a rock and the foolish man builds his house on the sand. In the end, the foolish man’s walls come tumbling down. Not a real big shocker there, huh?

In reality, most builders would never describe themselves as foolish, but there are times when a builder makes a foolish mistake in building a solid foundation. The results are often devastating and can cause literal tumbling down of walls. This is serious business and not just a song sung by children. Read More
