“We required a company to support one of our home while we removed 3 structural basement columns, removed the basement floor and existing piers, re-poured piers, allowed cure time, and replaced with new columns. From the initial contact, preliminary evaluation meeting, scheduling with homeowners, and field work, everyone involved was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and courteous.”

Wolfe installs cribbing and steel beams under the affected section of your structure, supporting the weight of that specific area while the foundation is repaired or replaced. This method allows the remaining parts of your building to be unaffected, keeping utilities hooked up and even allowing continued occupation of the building.
We use cribbing, steel beams, and our hydraulic jacking system to support and shore part or all of your building for deep excavation to remove contaminated soil, bring in new fill, and install the new foundation. When significant excavation is required, we use crib piles built on platforms supported by micro-piles or helical piles so the excavation can be completed safely.
Wolfe supports your building at its existing elevation and shores it there while the old foundation is removed, further excavation is completed, and a new foundation built up. This process can be done for all types of buildings, including frame, log, block, brick, and stone buildings, and the excavation can be done as deep as the micro-pile or helical pile supports can be installed.
We install shoring in commercial and industrial buildings for a variety of purposes. We support interior columns to allow replacement of faulty pile caps or while footer pads are upgraded. We shore exterior or interior walls so you can add or remove banks of windows or replace sections of a wall. We also shore roof girders for column repair or replacement. Roof joists can be supported for girder replacement or to swap out interior walls for new beams and columns. Whatever your shoring need, Wolfe House Movers has a safe, efficient, and cost-effective solution.
