Re: brick colums leaning back

If the colums are leaning it usually means they were built without a proper footer. There are some companies that do foundation jacking, but for you to get the proper equipment and material to do this would probably cost more than hiring one of those companies. The other posibility is to tear the colums down, install a proper footer, and rebuild the columns.
