Shoring is an operation where the building is not actually lifted off its foundation but the weight of the home is transferred to steel beams or cribbing. Once the home is shored and weight transferred off the foundation walls, they can be removed to replace or excavate under the home to increase wall height.
This can be done under only a part of your home, such as an addition that has only a short crawl space and you would like to add a full basement.
