CLEAR, SIMPLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD
We believe that clear communication with our clients is vital to a successful project and a continuing business. When discussing your structural problems we will ask lots of questions and listen carefully. In return, you will get straight forward advice and information and services tailored directly to your needs.
Underpinning issues can often take place beneath buildings both old and new. The course of time may cause structures to shift and, more often than not, the poor quality of the ground beneath the building is the reason. Underpinning techniques are the solution.
Our experience with underpinning solutions enables us to solve more complicated foundation problems. When project ground conditions are so poor that traditional underpinning is not possible we have the underpinning technique to meet this challenge. Our team of seasoned experts use the industries best products combined with professional engineering to stabilize defective foundations and structures.
Speeler Foundations’s underpinning specialists have the knowledge and equipment to provide the best solutions for the most challenging underpinning projects. Feel free to ask our team of professionals for advice and more in-depth information regarding the underpinning options available and find the one that best suits your project.
Speeler Foundations has the knowledge and experience in all types of helical pier and helical pile applications and materials. We are committed to exceeding the expectations of our clients by achieving the highest quality with cost efficiency.
We offer a comprehensive range of helical pier and piling services designed to meet all types of requirements and to provide effective solutions for various foundation repair projects:
A helical anchor/pile is a segmented deep foundation system with helical bearing plates welded to a central steel shaft. Load is transferred from the shaft to the soil through these bearing plates. Central steel shafts are available in either Type SS (Square Shaft) series or Type RS (Round Shaft) series. The Type SS series are available in 1-1/4″ to 2-1/4″ square sizes. The Type RS series are available in 2-7/8″ to 4-1/2″ diameter sizes. Type SS-RS combinations are also available for compression applications in soil conditions where dense/hard soils must be penetrated with softer/loose soils above the bearing strata. The Helical Pulldown® Micropile series is also used in applications similar to those requiring the use of the Type SS-RS combinations.
Segments or sections are joined with bolted couplings. Installation depth is limited only by soil density and practicality based on economics. A helical bearing plate or helix is one pitch of a screw thread. All helices, regardless of their diameter, have a standard 3″ pitch. Being a true helical shape, the helices do not auger into the soil but rather screw into it with minimal soil disturbance. Helical plates are spaced at distances far enough apart that they function independently as individual bearing elements; consequently, the capacity of a particular helix on a helical anchor/pile shaft is not influenced by the helix above or below it.

Speeler’s designers utilize their experience, their engineering know-how, and the latest technology in seawall design to create a long-lasting seawall, bulkhead, or retaining wall. Whether you are looking for a seawall made of interlocking vinyl panels, wood timbers, or stone riprap, Speeler does it all – and does it better than anyone.
We have the experience and knowledge of seawall design and construction to assist you with all phases of your bulkhead or seawall project, in terms of erosion control.
Speeler Foundations has the expertise and infrastructure to service waterfront projects large and small. From residential waterfront properties to marinas and commercial facilities, Speeler Foundations is prepared to meet all of your shoreline protection needs.
• Vinyl Seawall
• Concrete Seawall
• Steel Seawall
• Wood Seawall
• Riprap Seawall
A very effective and efficient form of erosion control is rip rap, a series of strategically placed boulders to form a natural barrier. Also known rubble, shot rock or “Rip-rap,” this time-tested practice is used to protect shorelines, streambeds, bridge abutments, pilings and other shoreline structures against erosion.
Commonly made with granite or limestone, and occasionally concrete rubble from building and paving demolition, rip rap is a good re-use of sustainable materials.
• Stone Rip Rap
• Rock Rip Rap
• Granite Rip Rap
• Limestone Rip Rap
• Concrete Rip Rap
Riprap works by absorbing and deflecting the energy of waves before they reach the defended structure. The size and mass of the riprap material absorbs the impact energy of waves, while the gaps between the rocks trap and slow the flow of water, lessening its ability to erode soil or structures on the coast.
Speeler Foundations has been providing affordable rip rap seawall design and construction for many years.
Depending on the current condition of your existing seawall, maintenance or repair may be the best option.
In many cases, seawall replacement may not fit the budget, and alternative methods of stabilization are performed. Speeler Foundations offers many alternative techniques for stabilizing existing seawalls such as CHANCE helical tiebacks, replacement of cap and anchors, and the installation of beam and anchor systems.
We use the most trusted and time-tested stabilization methods in order to prolong the safety and life of your seawall structure.
