We replace old, crumbling or rotting pilings and bases with brand-new full foundations that we build or, in many coastal applications, with FEMA A-zone and V-zone foundations, or helical piers, which we encase in concrete columns to raise the building out of harm’s way and allow the passage of flood waters without damaging the structure.

On Cape Cod, the need for reliable bulkheads and seawalls has increased due to quickly-eroding shorelines. Ambrose Homes, Inc. repairs and installs bulkheads and seawalls using our specialized equipment and skilled crew to protect homes swiftly with low environmental impact.

Bulkheads and seawalls are vertical shoreline stabilization structures that provide protection from waves and retain soil. Bulkheads and seawalls can be constructed from a variety of materials including concrete, wood, and vinyl.  Seawalls are typically used to prevent homes from storm surges with pounding surf, eroding shorelines and waves.
