Pier Construction for Oak Island & Ocean Isle Beach, NC

Having access to the coast from the comfort of your home is an exciting prospect. But sometimes you can’t get there from here, so to speak. Beach dune restrictions, fluctuating high and low tides, or distant navigable water depths require pier construction to create that deck walkway to make the trip to your boat dock possible.

We’re licensed North Carolina general contractors and understand the local codes and statewide restrictions involved in marine construction projects. We are fully insured, including the federally mandated USL&H coverage needed to work near the ocean, lakes, rivers or streams in North Carolina.
Pier Construction Oak Island, NC
To ensure your pier construction will last for years, H5 CONSTRUCTION uses round or square marine grade pressure-treated wood infused with copper to prevent fungi growth that causes wood rot. To protect the environment, chromium is also infused into the wood which triggers a chemical reaction that locks in the insecticide into the wood cells for its pier pilings and columns. This is the highest 2.5 CCA marine grade treated wood protection level value available for salt water immersion use. All dimensional lumber is standard treatment.

How to Dig a Hole for Underwater Pier Piling

The most cost-effective method to drive the wooden pier pilings or “poles” into the bottom of the waterway is to use a 500+ lb. hydraulic hammer for maximum stability. The pressurized water jet digs a hole while the piling is driven into the seabed securely. Measuring and re-measuring ensures proper placement and a sound pier installation.

Pier Construction Options

Once you have access to the water, you may want to sit and enjoy the view, or have a place to clean the day’s catch, right? H5 CONSTRUCTION has the skilled craftsmen to customize your pier construction project with a relaxing gazebo and benches, or safety rails, ramps, swim ladders, or even an outdoor grill kitchen! The sky is the limit.
