How to Find the Top Marine Construction Company in NC
How to Find, Evaluate and Hire a Professional Marine Construction Contractor
What is the Single Most Important Aspect of Any Marine Structure? Similar to a house, the structural integrity of any marine structure relies on a strong foundation.
When you hire Logan Marine, your foundation piles will be hammer driven with up to 10,000 ft/lbs. of energy in every blow, offering the most supportive AND held down installation available. In addition, we protect your timber piles against worm infestation.These two methods alone will alleviate two leading causes of marine structure failures:
1) Loose Foundation Piles and 2) Worm Infested Foundation Piles.
It all Begins and Ends at the Foundation...... but we realize that's probably not enough to get your full buy in, so here's a few more key factors to consider before hiring a marine contractor:
