That one option is the elevation, or raising, of those homes located in the impacted flood plain. Elevation of these at risk properties is the only sustainable and economically viable solution to protect against potential future disasters. Clear evidence in support of this statement is visible today. In the aftermath of Sandy, elevated houses survived with little to no damage relative to their unelevated counterparts, many of which were destroyed in part or whole. This is perhaps best illustrated in side-by side comparisons of houses in the same neighborhood whereby elevated houses sustained limited – if any – damage while neighboring unraised homes were completely decimated.
Why is this important? This is important because less damage – or no damage – means fewer, repeated insurance claims as well as limited temporary housing, rental and other flood related assistance demands. Simply put, it means a vastly reduced economic burden on the entities responsible for paying out future claims, such as FEMA. It is clear that elevation of impacted homes is the only solution by which to protect against future losses.

That one option is the elevation, or raising, of those homes located in the impacted Helical piers have been used for years to provide foundation systems for buildings and homes. Hurricane Sandy or Super Storm Sandy has brought the use of helical piers or micro pilings into more main stream focus.
Most concrete pier and beam foundations have a concrete grade beam or masonry foundation wall that supports the exterior wall of the house. Interior concrete piers are then used to support the beams, which in turn support the floor joists that your floor and subfloor rest on. Unlike more modern wooden piling foundations, concrete pier and beam foundations have many “moving parts" that could have been disturbed by the storm.
Helical piers can be utilized to bring foundations up to current codes on both a local and federal level.
Engineers, architects and new flood building codes are showing how helical piers are an ideal solution for reconstruction of storm damaged homes. Helical piers are being utilized to bring foundations up to current codes on both a local and federal level.
Helical piers can be used to:
Deepen and strengthen existing foundations.
Raise homes to new flood plain heights.
Replace existing storm damaged foundations.
