Timber Shoring Services in Columbia, SC & Surrounding Areas
For over a decade, the team at Engineered Solutions of Georgia has provided customers in the Columbia, South Carolina, area with expert structural and geotechnical services, including timber shoring. Timber shoring is the process of supporting a building, vessel, or other man-made or natural structure with wooden props during construction or while making alterations. For example, a dilapidated building whose walls are in danger of collapsing may be propped while masons make necessary repairs. Likewise, when digging trenches for pipelines, sewers, or other subterranean systems, props are commonly used to reinforce the sides of the trench to prevent collapse in the event that the surrounding soil structures shift.
Why Timber Shoring May Be Right for Your Project
When compared to other shoring methods—such as using cement or steel props—timber shoring is often preferred because timber props:
- Can be more easily resized on the worksite
- Require less preparation before being installed
- Are more cost-effective and can be more easily sourced
- Are more ideal for lightweight structures
