I recently discovered mold on wood that was on the bottom part of a support wall in my
basement. The original leak that resulted inthe mold has been corrected. I removed the mold that was present and discovered that the integrity of the wood ( approx 4 inches by 4 inches) was compromised. The problem wood is right above the foundation.
I need to locate a building contractor in the
Philadelphia area that is reputable to replace the damaged section. I had a carpenter /handyman look at the problem, but he was afraid of working with a support wall without being aware of the design of the house.Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. In addition to my my lack of typing skills I have no experience with construction problems--I need your help!
