Bay Front Home Deck Repair


Date: 10/1/2019


A backyard addition consisting of a concrete deck and canopy was built on the bay of an Ocean City New Jersey residence. The area is known to have weak and unstable soils. In less than a year, the whole area began to settle. Fourteen helical piles were installed with underpinning brackets to arrest the settlement and stabilize the addition.

  • # of Helical Piles: 14 (8 underpinning 6 new construction)
  • Location: Ocean City, NJ
  • Installation Depth: 45′
  • Ultimate Pile Capacity: 30 kips
  • Equipment Used: Mini Excavator, Walk behind loader, 6K drive head, Marian torque indicator
