What is Temporary Shoring?

Chances are if you are reading this, you were searching for temporary shoring services and understand the concept and why it is needed.  However, many people facing damage and destruction after an emergency are just beginning to understand the wide range of services available that help secure their property and keep it safe after a disaster.

Shoring is necessary when your home or business is damaged and in danger of collapsing.  It is the act of propping up your structure with boards to ensure safety and to protect the property from further damage.   This is a temporary solution that protects your home or business so you can focus on a plan of action.

Most emergencies and disasters contribute to homes and businesses needing temporary shoring.  Fires, weather events, water damage, and foundation disasters from car accidents or other occurrences all may cause your property to become vulnerable.   At LaPointe Construction Board Up Services, we have over 50 years of experience protecting you and your family.

So when might you have a need for our temporary shoring services?  You may experience:

  • Car Accidents:  the number one reason our team is for temporary shoring services is after a car or truck has lost control and collided into your home or business.
  • Fire: a fire in your home or business may cause your structure to be unstable.
  • Floods: A flood can do more than just water damage.  The power of water has the capability to rip structural supports out of your foundation.  Additionally, it can ruin your building’s foundation with strong currents and floating debris that collide into posts and support beams.
  • Soil erosion:  Eroding soil or settling foundations can issue a challenge to your structure resulting in collapsed walls or ceilings.
  • Storms:  Snow, ice, rain and hail can bring down trees and poles damaging your home.
