Shoring, Raising, and Excavation 

Homes, buildings, and other structures sometimes need a little bit of help. Houses sink, buildings lean, floods come and change everything. Structural steel and posts may be installed to level floor(s) in houses and buildings. Walls, for many reasons can start sagging, bowing, or leaning, requiring shoring to be applied. A basement can be added underneath an existing home by raising the building, excavating beneath, building the new walls/floor, and setting down the home on the new foundation. Visit any of the pages below to get a glimpse of how we can help.
