Emergency Shoring Los Angeles, Orange County

A.L. Vineyard Construction, Inc. contractors provide 24 hour emergency shoring services. The process of supporting a structure in order to prevent collapse so that construction can proceed is very important.   It is used to support the beams, floors and foundation in a building while a column or wall is removed. In this situation vertical supports are used as a temporary replacement for the building columns or walls. The installation of emergency structural shoring enables the owner to both stabilize the building and have time for engineers to develop a method of repair while continuing to have the use of the building in order to remain in operation. This temporary shoring system can most often be installed in such a manner that does not interfere with the daily operation of the facilities. We understand the utmost importance is to keep the business in operation especially in this economic climate.

Warning Signs

While inspecting your building, look for these warning signs as they might be a sign of a structural problem:

  • Uneven or sloping floors
  • Areas on roof that pond water or water does not properly drain
  • Cracks in exterior or interior
  • Cracks in drywall/ Nails “popping” out
  • Sound of wood creaking or settling
  • Bowing walls
  • Cracks in walls, near windows and/or door openings
  • Doors or window that don’t open or close
  • Building is leaning

Remember to respond quickly once you see any of these warning signs and especially if they get worse over the years. Often it is easier and cheaper to make the repair now and prevent more structural damage to walls, floors, doors and windows later on.
