We are raising more and more houses at the jersey shore even 2 years after Sandy. Many being raised are engineered with the use of helical piles. If you have heard of this process and wondered how it works it’s realitively simple but choosing the right honest contractor to do your job is key.
Here at split-rok construction have found just that contractor. Both efficient and honest HSS Helical piles in point pleasant fit the bill.
We are presently raising and installing a house on 153 Ocean Ave. Point Pleasant Beach that we renovated the entire interior on in 2013.
A soil boring was done that indicated that solid base was encountered at 25′ below the surface.
Experience in knowing the area and an honest appraisal of the situation lead Adam Musgrave to
Recommend trying to use a larger helix the accomplish the necessary torque required without Having to charge us to go deeper. His fear that there might be a soft layer below 25′ that if broken through might cause us to have to go deeper then 25′ or more and therefore push us way over budget.
A test pile was drilled as shown hear and luckily we hit 4800psi. More than enough to hold our 1000′ structure. All other piles driven torqued out at about 15-16′. Job well done. Can’t thank Adam and his all American crew for their help.
When I showed up on the job and saw a large American flag hanging on back of there machine I told Ed there Forman that the flag alone gave me confidence in them.
Many contractors that are doing this type of work are not at all as reputable as Adam and his company. I’ve spent 30 years in my own business and 10 years prior to that working in the union as a concrete finisher,and haven’t seen this type of dedication for years. What a pleasure to feel confident that I gave my client the best possible job at the best price.
