This is a short gallery of a store front wall we re-built after a car crashed into it.
Crash!Long story short, someone hit the accelerator instead of the brake, jumped the parking block, and crashed into the store front.
The picture doesn't really do justice to the amound of damage caused. The brick facade only shifted an inch or so, but the block wall behind the brick, and the old aluminum framed glass had buckled pretty badly.
This picture also does not do justice to the damage that was done, but you can see they had a bunch of shelving that used to be filled with product. All of which was destroyed.
Again, this picture doesn't show it too well, but the doors were thrown out of whack and no longer work properly.
With everything temporarily supported, we removed all of the damaged wall, and built temp walls to secure everything during construction.
Here is a shot after we removed all the damaged masonry and chipped off all the old mortar for the new block knee wall.
With the new block wall built and filled with concrete, we set the track for the new metal framed wall.
The wall is framed, and we're almost done hanging the sheathing.
Here you can see the sheathing is hung, and the new door is in.
Roxul brand mineral wool insulation throughout.
This is a shot of us laminating new shelving back at the warehouse.
The new shelving installed.
The Finished WallStill to be done at a later date is new flooring and base moulding.
On the outside it's 2" of foam and Dryvit to finish it all off. Now all they need is a new sign, but that's up to another contractor.
