    My home is built with perimeter walls of concrete filled Styrofoam block with a brick veneer that is supported by an iron angle bolted into the concrete through the Styrofoam. In the last 20 years, the iron angle has begun to drop causing the brick to begin to break away from the house. I would like to pour a concrete footing to support the brick, but am unsure how to form and pour under the existing brick wall. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Gregory, I hate to say it but I don’t think this is a do it yourself job. To do this correctly you are going to need some serious engineering design. It will also take equipment that only a professional company has.
