DELANCO, NJ, Oct. 9, 2013 — Witness the installation completed in Point Pleasant, NJ on This Old House as host Kevin O’Connor walks through the Bay Head project that has been lifted on cribbing and is ready for the grouted helical piles for lateral support. The national premiere of the HPM Technology for Flood Zone Home Elevation will air on October 17th. Visit www.thisoldhouse.com to check local listings of Episode #3303 “Getting to Work.”
Foundation repair plans are designed to meet the structural support needs of each home. The repair plan uses the geotechnical properties of the area soils and the governing building codes/regulations in the area where the home is located. Helical Piles “screw” into the ground much like a wood screw into wood; thereby making a solid Foundation Support for the entire home. Reintroduced to the market for A and V Flood Zone installation, the solution has become recognized as the industry leading home elevation solution.
This technology comes from the founding helical pile manufacturer, Inc. (HPS) whose products span the civil construction, electric utility and telecommunications markets. Providing stabilization for elevated homes, homeowners have begun to experience peace of mind knowing that their home can withstand future storm impact.
An Engineer is needed to assess the structural needs of each home. The quantity of helical piles and the depth that is needed is determined on a case by case basis.
