Word-of-the-Month: Shoring

May 2018

Shoring is the process of installing temporary supports. In new construction, horizontal or vertical supports (or shores) made of either timber or steel can be placed to support walls, usually at a 60˚–70˚ angle. They are also used during renovations to hold up something unstable or weak.


Fun Fact
Archeologists use shores during excavations to prevent collapse and to expedite the dig process.
