Types of Pile Repair Systems
Posted by pilecapinc on March 22nd, 2020
Concrete piles or wooden piles that support marine structures at port authority locations and loading terminals will need structural repair at some time. PILECAP Inc. understands the damage caused by stress overload, impact into structures by ocean transport vessels, tugs and barges; exposing reinforcement, causing corrosion scouring of the concrete substrate. Tide level changes in the splash zone where cyclic wetting and drying amplifies the corrosion rate. Corrosion of reinforcement causes concrete spalls. Timber piles can show evidence of marine borer worms causing deterioration to piling and major damage to the designed wood pier structure. Our experienced marine diving teams have the knowledge to repair, secure and extend the designed service life for more durable, longer service life of marine structure with our pile repair services.
Steel Pile Repair
Sealers, coating systems that allow for the out gassing of moisture while preventing moisture to penetrate the substrate can be useful in tidal and splash zone areas. Zinc enriched and glass flake coatings are effective on steel piles. Contact PILECAP today for steel pile repair and installation services.

Timber Pile Repair
PILECAP Inc offer timber piles repair services in addition to timber pile system installation. Pile jacket systems constructed of fiberglass forms, HDPE, outer cover bolted system, timber pile tape wraps or nylon fabric jackets when filled with epoxy grout or cementitious grout can structurally restore, protect and thus return the marine pile back to original design specifications. Petrolatum tape and protective outer cover are used to repair timber piles.
Concrete Pile Repair
PILECAP Inc specializes in Concrete Pile Repair System. Embedded galvanic cathodic protection systems, offer corrosion protection using a sacrificial zinc element through an electrochemical process. This allows the zinc to be consumed as opposed to the reinforcement. These anodes can be installed during the repair process or in construction where old concrete and reinforcement are co-joined with new construction add-on’s. Understanding that repairing without addressing the presence of chloride ions that exist will continue to allow the corrosion process to continue, therefore cathodic protection should be considered using metalizing spray process with zinc coating to the piles, and preformed zinc mesh sheeting attached to the inside of integral pile repair jackets.
