An essential part of constructing a new building is ensuring the building gets adequate support during the process. The top surface of a building often requires support before it is completed, which is where shoring systems come in.
At Savage Scaffold & Equipment Co., we have a thorough knowledge of the best and safest construction practices. Our large selection of scaffolding, which includes wood, aluminum, and steel shores, suits the needs of any construction project.
When to Use a Shoring System
Shoring up a building is particularly necessary when performing repairs. Since the structure becomes weakened during the process as broken elements are removed and replaced, shoring systems prevent collapse or increased damage.
Shores are also useful when installing a building’s foundation. The heavy concrete, unsupported by anything but the actual ground, can collapse in on itself. Using a shoring system means the foundation receives the necessary support until it is strong enough to not only stand on its own, but also support the weight of the rest of the building.
You may also need shores if your construction project requires you to dig a trench, or if the building you are working on has several levels of concrete floors.
