Lindy loves her home in Walton, NY. There is a beautiful barn on the property that was originally built in the 1800s. It was then rebuilt in 1909. Through the years her husband and his friends would maintain and repair the barn. After her husband's passing, she knew that the barn was in need of some repair and it was important for her to finish what her husband had started. Knowing that Woodford Brothers were the barn experts, she gave us a call. Our Customer Care department was able to set up an appointment for a free estimate with our Barn Design Specialist, Chris. Chris traveled to Walton to inspect the barn and found out exactly what the problems were. When he finished up the inspection he was able to tell her exactly what was wrong, exactly how to fix it, and exactly what it would cost. Chris then set a start date to get the job done. Our expert barn crew, led by Wayne, got right to work repairing the barn. Wayne and crew were able to sister the eave beams, replace some old posts, in-fill some of the old mortar, sister some tie beams and use a cabling system to straighten up the barn. Now Lindy has full peace of mind that her beloved barn that was so well kept by her late husband and friends will last for many years to come.

Sharon was looking to sell or rent her home in Sherrill, NY. There we some cracks on the foundation wall that needed to be addressed first. Since the problem had been getting worse and there was water pooling up on the basement floor she knew who to call. She called Woodford Brothers since she had worked with us in the past and knew we were the experts.
Our customer care department sent Chris to inspect and provide a same day proposal. Chris saw that the fix to the problem would be CarbonArmor straps to protect the wall from bowing further. Since the type of foundation Sharon has is monolithic, meaning the footer and the floor were poured together, Chris proposed the DryTrak system with a Super Sump to keep the floors dry for good.
