This wood piling has almost completely rotted away.
A technician secures a fiberglass jacket around the pile, making sure that the jacket extends well above and below the damaged area.
Two-part structural epoxy is injected inside the jacket's tubular form. The high-strength filler saturates damaged wood and cures to a dense, strong repair.
This spot repair is the perfect cure for piles that rot or deteriorate. The encapsulation process creates a stronger-than-new piling that won't rot in the future.
Alpha Foundations repaired these timber piles that support a home in Pensacola, Florida. Many homes along the coast have foundations made from similar piles, which can decay and weaken over time. The repair procedure we use is quick and affordable and, instead of replacing a damaged piling, we can restore its structural integrity as seen in this album.
