Jersey Shore Rebuilds: Sandy and The Jersey Shore, Part 3 of 8
Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 1:30pm ET (check local listings)
Kevin meets Special Counsel Chris Nelson on the bridge in Mantoloking NJ to hear the story of the storm that took out 200 of the 528 houses in their town, and they head out in a beach rescue vehicle to see the scale of the job ahead. Now that the Bay Head project house has been lifted four feet for repairs, builder Kevin D’Anunciaçao shows Norm the progress on the framing, how they worked around the cribbing, and the improvements they’re making to the spaces on the second floor. The Point Pleasant house is finally up on cribbing, and Gary Seider shows Kevin how they’ll pin it to the ground using steel helical pull-down micro-piles that screw into the soil while pulling a grout-filled sleeve with them for lateral support. Richard hears from modular home builder Anthony Zarrilli that traditional wooden piles are the cost-effective way to go for new construction: they drive the piles to the required elevation, then cut them to receive the bandboard that will support the house. Norm takes Richard to see a welcome sign of life in Bay Head—Mueller’s Bakery—a Shore fixture for 100 years that is just now opening after 7 months of rebuilding from Sandy damage.

Don’t forget to tune in at 8pm tonight, Thursday, October 17th, to see Gary Seider,  and DANBRO‘s Sandy Solution!
