Davie Shoring has developed a patented technology called Permalock, the latest in shoring and home elevation construction. Permalock uses a unified hydraulic jacking system which keeps pilings vertically aligned to avoid buckling. This enables us to lift a home without compromising its structural integrity. Unlike other methods, each concrete block securely locks together into one continuous ridge piling, preventing lateral structural movement before and after the installation.
Also, Davie’s Permalock technology meets the necessary depth requirements, so that a home will remain stable even in wet soil. Best of all, Permalock home elevation is FEMA approved and paid for by FEMA Grant funding with little to no out-of-pocket cost. The process only takes two to three days, and all contents inside will remain safely intact. With Davie Shoring’s new home elevation techniques, homeowners can feel confident knowing that their home will be safe from floodwater and foundation damage.
