Installing Foundation Pilings for Buildings in the Coastal Areas Around Foley
Your foundation is everything. If you own a marina, boat owners trust that your custom piers won’t wash away in the wind and waves. For those who own homes in Foley and southern Alabama, the presence of groundwater and poor soils can cause engineers to specify piling installation. Edgewater Marine Construction, Inc. has decades of experience in setting framework for heavy structures such as bridges and tall buildings. In cases for which clients asked us to inspect highly deteriorated foundations, we’ve carried out piling replacement in place.
Foundation piling installation, inspection and repair are key for safety. A good subgrade can also provide additional stability to minimize the effects of earthquakes and heavy wind loads. If you aren’t sure if wood, concrete or composite is right for your application, talk to us or hire a consultant. Another important consideration is the soil analysis to determine the depth of foundation you need to support the construction above. Your goal is to create an underground scenario that resembles bedrock, and depending on how loose the surrounding soils are that can be a ways down.
Homes in areas subject to flooding or tidal surges can be propped up via a column system. Residents typically use the first floor area vacancy for a carport and storage. Thanks to this setup, even high waters won’t damage your home’s furniture and fabrics.
