Wood Piling

Wood pilings are a time-tested foundation. Timber piles are made from the trunks of tall straight trees. The more typical species are conifers such as Southern Yellow Pine and Douglas Fir. All permanent timber piles driven in marine environments and where the butt (upper end) will be above groundwater levels require a preservative treatment to resist rot, insect and marine borer attack.

Although steel and concrete pilings are available, most builders in our area use wood pilings for homes. Provencher Piers has all the capabilities to drive wood piles in nearly all locations and conditions.
