I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient with us as these are technical questions and some testing may be required.
It may take a bit of back and forth conversation to be sure we have all the information in order to make a proper diagnosis.
I understand it is a load bearing wall but is it an out side wall?
Also can let me know your region?
Thank you
