The Difference is in the Details
Once a home is raised, it becomes increasingly susceptible to wind force. All Orleans Shoring elevation projects are protected from wind damage by anchoring the structure with the use of Simpson Hurricane Straps or turnbuckles.
You can judge a company’s commitment to excellence through details. Look at the materials, specifically the termite shields they use. Do they feel sturdy and strong or more like aluminum foil? Orleans Shoring has termite shields manufactured with heavier gauge galvanized metal to resist decay over time.
Another often overlooked detail after raising a home is the access door. In order to get beneath the home after it is raised, you’ll need a door. Some companies will leave you with what amounts to a plywood sheet to function as a door. Orleans Shoring’s attention to detail demands that you will have a sturdy, truly functioning, and locking steel door included with your job.
Venting beneath the home is essential after a home has been raised. Other companies will use cheap plastic or cast iron vents that will break and rust over time. Orleans Shoring invests in lightweight, maintenance free aluminum vents for all their customers.
What happens to debris after your job is finished? It is typical for most companies to leave job site debris and material at the curb (or even under the house) in hopes that either you or the city will have it picked up. Rest assured that Orleans Shoring will have your work site cleaned spic-and-span. We won’t leave you with a mess after the job is complete.
