Builders Care

Sep 5 2014

Recently, Preferred Materials in conjunction with Jimmy Rodgers, owner of Westcoast Structural Concrete and Masonry, and a number of other Lee Building Association members participated in a project to repair Diane Schroeder’s sinking home in Fort Myers. Engineers speculate that the home was built on buried debris and over the years the unstable ground resulted in serious foundation problems. The uneven floor caused Diane, who is a recent amputee utilizing a wheelchair, great difficulty maneuvering throughout her house and rendered her main bathroom unusable. The team of Lee Builders Care volunteers went to work installing foundation stabilizing piers and replacing broken concrete slabs and walkways giving Diane the ability to safely get around her home again.
