Dillabaugh Inc. has been moving houses, buildings, and other structures for more than 125 years. Located in Crown Point, Indiana, we're centrally located for quick mobilization across the US. Our business has been handed down from father to son for five generations; our sixth generation will be taking over before we know it.
What kind of services do we provide? Here's a list of our main focus areas:
House, building, and structural moving- All types of buildings and structures can be moved across the yard, down the street, and sometimes across town.
House and building raising, shoring, and excavation-
Many areas have been devastated by flooding recently. We raise homes and buildings in floodways (flood plains) to the flood protection grade (or above) in accordance with regulations set forth by your county or state.
Shoring is used for many reasons; sometimes a wall starts to move or a floor starts to sag. Building entrances are changed, and roofs are raised or lowered.
Excavation- Houses and buildings may receive new foundations without moving. We are capable of raising homes and excavating beneath them, whether for foundation replacement or change of foundation type (crawlspace to basement).
Often, some or all of a structural move will require rigging. Machinery (including transformers) are extremely heavy for their size and require special handling to compensate for the excessive weight.
Homes and buildings are what we do most often, but we're also proficient in selective and specialty demolition. These fields demand precision, as only a portion of the structure or its contents are being removed.
