Whether your project takes place on land or sea, this simple fact remains the same. Crafting a solid foundation is critical to ensuring the structural integrity of your build. Failure to properly install foundations is not only risky in a safe sense, but it can be catastrophic for finances down the line. Unfortunately, far too many contractors cut corners or look for shortcuts that are detrimental to your structures. At S&H our philosophy is straightforward. Take the time and care to do it right the first time. While it might be alluring to partner with contractors who promise exorbitantly low prices, you will most likely have to pay the piper in repairs down the line. With S&H, your investment today is money towards the prolonged lifespan of your build.

As a highly regarded construction company in Cape Coral, clients and others with access to waterways are often curious about marine piling’s role in construction. It’s not unusual for those who are new to this type of construction to need extra guidance when it comes to this particular process. Fortunately, at S&H we always seek to inform and educate our clients so that they have the necessary context to make well-rounded decisions. With that in mind, if you’re wondering what marine piling is, you’re in good company.
To concisely summarize, marine piling is the process of setting deep foundations embedded into the bedrock that sits below sea level. Marine piling is pertinent to ensuring offshore or water structures have the necessary foundation to support larger builds. Flawlessly executed marine piling can make the difference between a structure that can withstand natural erosion and volatile weather and a structure that succumbs easily to the elements.
The procedure of installing marine piling is intricate and requires the utmost attention to detail, especially when dealing with equipment like underwater drills. Not only do we know how to expertly install marine piling, but we can walk you through the common materials used in the process and give you our recommendations based on your budget, property anatomy, and other critical factors.

Building a structure in water is difficult to begin with, especially if it’s not handled by professionals. Here in Florida, we are faced with all types of volatile weather that can be very threatening to overwater structures. The key is to use the proper materials, and that begins with the marine piling process. While there are multiple types of materials used for marine piling, the key is to ensure these components have been water treated. Our water treatment helps protect against excess rust and corrosion which can easily threaten a structure’s integrity.
Each material has its own benefits and drawbacks, which our team will walk you through before we begin the process. Regardless of what material we do ultimately implement in the marine piling procedure, we will ensure it undergoes the necessary treatments and preparations to promote longevity and safety.
