How to Move a Concrete Block Wall Southwest Marietta, GA
anglins truck

Your boss decided that your work from home (WFH) status will be permanent rather than temporary, as first expected. It turns out they couldn’t afford the rent on the commercial property during the pandemic and had to let it go.

Now, you have some decisions to make as well. Since this WFH position will be permanent, working from the dining room table is not practical long-term, so you’ve decided to knock out that concrete wall and build your WFH office.

You and a friend were talking, and he said it is a load-bearing wall, and moving it will require a new beam, or it might cause damage. Plus, you’re not sure you have the time, tools or talent to do this by yourself.

Ask Anglin’s

The first thing you should determine is if it is indeed a load-bearing wall. If it isn’t, you might be able to do it yourself (DIY). Of course, the professionals at Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair can make the determination, provide a free consultation and a no-obligation estimate. If you desire, we can do the project quickly and safely.

Building Permits & Electrical

We’ll also determine what’s necessary for permits and electrical and get those before we start work. Plus, we have all the scaffolding and safety tools and equipment such as safety goggles, respirators, air filters, earplugs and clothing that a DIY project would require you to rent or buy.

Knocking down a block wall will create much concrete dust, so we’ll cover your belongings with drop cloths so that you won’t have to move everything.

We’ll bring in a dumpster to break up the concrete and tear out the rebar without leaving a mess. We’ll move everything to the waste management facilities so that you need not rent a truck. Everything will look new and clean before we leave.

Getting What You Need Without Spending More Than Necessary

Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair does this work daily, so we have all the equipment, vehicles, tools and know-how. We’ll get it done right the first time and give you a worry-free warranty. Why not call us today for a no-obligation estimate on your remodel?

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
