Home Improvement Job

Looking for someone who does handyman/home improvement and could give me a quote on repairing this awning.

The roof is bowing and the rain gutter is leaning. The concrete pad it's on is settling and slanted.

Would like to get estimates on getting this all fixed.

Just an observation...you went through the trouble to edit the addresses on the posts, however you left them visible on the trash cans.

Good luck with your fix-it. Suggestion would be to run it past the neighbor and see if they want to split it and get it all done at the same time.

It's going to be a lot more than the $500 allowance you mentioned in the other thread - probably better off selling to the investor if this has to be fixed..

It looks like mud jacking the slab is required to get everything level.

My amateur guestimation is 5000. That's based on my diy experience fixing similar things on my own house.

Cheaper to tear down the awning if it wasn't shared.

Could they just install a new support column to fix it for the interum?

This. For a sale, I would jack up the sagging roof, put in a new post, and then just clean everything up.

Problem with the roof is it is shared , whatever you do to one side will effect the other side . You will be fixing both sides in the long run . IMHO

No hand rail next door, get their OK for a new post on their side of the middle on your dime, jack the middle to level, New 4x4 on your side tied into hand rail, new 4x4 on their side, 4x4s toenail to overhead, maybe a bracket to the slab to secure the bottom, paint both, call it a day

Or, even better, get the OK, loosen tops of 4x4s, jack the center to level, add short blocks or 4x4 to fill the gap between existing posts and roof, paint to match
