Pilings (also referred to as stilts or piers) may be the perfect solution for building or rebuilding after a hurricane like Sandy near the coast and in flood plains.

Their flexibility in height also makes them ideal for uneven terrain or where elevation is ndings. In some locations building codes will specify the height and type of piling or stilt foundations.

This is especially true in hurricane and severe weather zones like Florida, the Carolinas, New York and New Jersey, as well as in places like California and Hawaii, where sloping terrain, seismic activity and land slides must also be taken into account.

Piling and stilt home heights typically range from a few feet above ground to as much as 10 to 20 feet or more in coastal, hurricane and flood plain areas. Some Topsider stilt houses have been designed on steel pilings that are more than 25 feet tall. Pilings may be constructed of wood, concrete, steel or even composite materials. And they are usually driven, augured or jetted into place.
