Meet Garrett! Garrett came from a fix it yourself background and remembers helping friends and family since he could swing a hammer. Being the only one around with a truck at a young age, there was never a problem finding a way to help someone. Healthy Spaces has given him an opportunity to use these skills to help an even wider spectrum of people with an even bigger truck. His favorite thing about Healthy Spaces is meeting new people to aid in making more usable spaces in their homes. There is no greater feeling than knowing he was able to help protect worried homeowners and their largest investment!
In his free time, he enjoys playing music of any kind. Mostly playing guitar and piano, Garrett never backs down from a random jam or opportunities for spots in local bands. It’s not a rarity to catch him singing with an air guitar on any job site.
Signs of wall failure can show up differently depending on whether the home has a concrete block or poured concrete walls. For this homeowner in Robards, KY, they were showing signs of bowing walls starting to take place.
Design Specialist, Damon Cheatham, came out to asses their foundation and together they designed a solution that would permanently stabilize their home's foundation. Our Foundation crew, Tad and Garrett, installed 10 PowerBrace's. The PowerBrace system allows the system to be tightened over time, stopping wall failure without invasive drilling or digging on the property. PowerBrace's state-of-the-art brackets were engineered to provide strong joint reinforcement while also protecting the integrity of the home's floor system.
