When buying our house in the spring of 2007, we had concerns about the garage, it was an eyesore. Here is what the garage eyesore looked like in 2007:
In doing our do diligence, we had a home inspection which raised concerns about the garage. We wanted a garage wall repair estimate, so our real estate agent suggested a Chestnut Hill builder who agreed to take a look at the garage. Unfortunately he was unwilling/ unable to give us a repair cost estimate, so we prepared our own cost estimate for home purchase purposes.
A few years later, we ran into the very same Chestnut Hill builder when he purchased the Devon Enclave (now Devon Village). We again asked him to take a look at the garage to see if he could give us an estimate to repair the wall. Again he was unable to give us a repair cost estimate so we got an experienced masonry contractor.
Here is what our garage looks like now:
