How It Works
The LallyGone Process consists of three phases:
“Cheesy” Cable TV Commercial
1. Feasibility and Estimate
2. Design and Permits
3. Liberation Day
1. Feasibility and Estimate – At your request, we will visit your home for a free initial consultation and to make an assessment of the feasibility of the removal of your Lally column(s) or load bearing walls. This process requires careful inspection and documentation of the field conditions and a determination of the required structural reinforcement needed. Our field team will take measurements and provide you with immediate feedback on what can be accomplished, as well as a corresponding cost estimate – all within the first visit. A final recommendation will be made by our licensed structural engineer.
2. Design and Permits – Should you decide to move forward, we will begin our design process to select and size the structural members that will allow the removal of your Lally column(s) or load bearing walls. The design drawings and details will be prepared by our design team, signed and sealed by our structural engineer and submitted to your town building department for a permit. In order to begin the design and permit process, a 50% deposit check and signed agreement is required.
3. Liberation Day – Upon filing of your town permit (after receipt of project deposit, completion of engineering drawings, and ordering materials) our crew will come to your home and complete the installation of the structural support and the removal and disposal of your Lally column(s). This process takes anywhere from one to two days depending on the field conditions and the scope of the project. It is required that someone be present at your home the morning of the start of your project in order to review the process with our team leader and answer any questions. In addition, someone needs to be present at the end of the project in order to sign-off on the completion and make the final payment.
