When you’re restoring a building from the 1800s, you can’t afford to take risks. That’s why an engineer recommended Davie Shoring to the owners of an iconic historical building on St. Charles.
After realizing that the front porch on both floors had rotted and was actively collapsing, we built a 30-foot support system for the roof out of cribbing and steel beams. Once the roof was stabilized and secure, the porch could be restored using as much of the original lumber as possible.
We’re always proud to help restore such beautiful pieces of New Orleans history.
