I’m not a contractor but thought this was the best place to ask my question as I’ve done days of research with no clear answer. We have a concrete block walled garage with 10’ walls that needs serious help. The walls have settled over the years and have cracked and separated, I’ll post pics as soon as I can. There are 3 garage doors on the front, a man door on the one side and man door on back. The sections between the garage doors has drifted significantly. My question is how do I bring it back square and or stop it from worsening. We need to replace the roof badly but thought we would like to add a loft/apartment above the old structure if possible. Any help appreciated.

Hire a contractor.

Forget about “getting 3 bids”, that won’t help you.

Talk to your neighbors, friends, family, and get a referral.

If you see a project that impresses you, call that builder.

Don’t expect free design work. An hour or so consultation that the builder does not charge you for is great.

If there is mutual desire to go ahead with some ideas, be prepared to pay for design work and cost planning.

Be wary on any contractor who is willing to shoot off a bid without any plans and specs. Chances of you getting built what you wanted are slim, and chances of a poor outcome for both you and the builder are probable.

As I’m sure you read when you signed up, this is a pros only site.

And the problem you have is not something that can be diagnosed over the internet.

^^^ Hire a qualified contractor & open your wallet. This forum or any other for that matter can’t do chit for you sight unseen. If your shopping for the lowest bid, expect what you pay for.
