Foundation Services

Titan Foundations and Elevation works with many different foundation designs based on your flood zone; X – AE – Floodway – Coastal A & V Zone.

Depending on soil and building conditions, we can install the following foundation systems:

• Enclosed Foundation Design for X & AE Flood Area
• CMU Block Wall Foundation
• Pour Concrete Wall Foundation
• Cripple or Framed Pressure Treated Foundation Wall
Note: depending on footing and soil conditions some foundations can be built back onto existing foundations to lower cost.

  • Titan Foundations CMU Block Foundation Wall 1

CMU Block Foundation Wall

Usually, when this occurs your engineer has determined the existing foundation or soil conditions are unable to handle the loads without future settlement or movement. Titan Foundations and Elevation will remove the entire foundation and rat slab and, if needed, dig new footings and pour a 12" x 24" slab with 3 #5 rebar, with #5 vertical on 32"- 48" centers. A new 8" reinforced CMU wall and new Smart Engineered Flood Vents will be installed as required.
Access areas will be left open to allow steel to be removed after the house is lowered. These areas will be closed up after steel and cribbing is removed. Along with new 5/8" x 16" anchor bolts, the cells will be grouted solid in each cell where we have a vertical #5 rebar along with the top bond beam. Final design will be determined by an engineer.

  • Titan Foundations Poured Concrete Column

Poured Concrete Column

Titan Foundations & Elevation’s Concrete Column allows for Open Column Design and uses sizes; 12” x 12” / 16"x16″ / 18”x18” with 4 to 8 #7 vertical rebar cages that lock into the grade beams. Many times a Helical is installed under the column as a Sub Pile. 
This System allows for different stringer options; 2x10, 2x12, Power Beams (all pressure treated), single or double beams. 
Titan Foundations and Elevation system pours the stringers into the columns as one unit, tying the system form and the subfloor to the sub pile as one unit. This is the strongest column design we offer.

  • Cripple-Framed-Froundation-Wall-1

Cripple/Framed Foundation Wall

This is an excellent alternative to laying new 8" CMU block. Cripple Walls are short 2x8 / 2x6 short stud walls, framed with treated materials. They are sheeted on the exterior with treated plywood, making it easy to finish with vinyl, cement siding, paint or stucco. This wall is framed on top of your existing foundation due to the wood frame design. This greatly lessens the weight of the wall, thus allowing you to reuse your foundation. An engineer review will be required to determine final design of the cripple wall.

Titan Foundations and Elevation will remove the entire foundation and rat slab if needed, dig new footings and pour a 12" x 24" with 3 #5 rebar, with #5 vertical on 32"- 48" centers.

  • Titan-Foundations-Masonry Pilaster-Wall-4

Masonry Pilaster Column

Titan Foundations & Elevation’s Masonry Pilaster Column Open Column Design uses 16"x 16″ Masonry Pilaster Blocks, stacked and laid on top of each other to the required height. They have a 12" x 12" center core that gets pumped full of concrete after the masonry joints have cured. They include 4 #7 vertical rebar cages that lock into the grade beams. Many times a Helical is installed under the column as a Sub Pile. 
This System allows for different stringer options; 2x10, 2x12, Power Beams (all pressure treated), single or double beams.
Titan Foundations and Elevation system pours the stringers into the columns as one unit, tying the system form and the subfloor to the sub pile as one unit.

Titan Foundations and Elevation Helicals

When Titan installs your Helicals, we will supply a Quality Assurance Report that entails the following:

Name of certified installer, pile installation diagram, installation equipment, torque indicator, installation notes, obstructions, plumbness, final torque, total length and final elevation of Plate Cap.

  • Titan Foundations Helicals 1

Helical Pile Foundation System

The CANTSINK Helical Pile System is a Segmented Deep Foundation System with Helical Bearing Plates welded to a central shaft. Load is transferred from the shaft to the soil through Helical Bearing Plates. As A result of their true Helical shape, the Helices do not auger into the soil but rather screw into it with minimal disturbance.
The first section, called the lead section, contains the Helical Plates. The lead section can consist of one to four Helices. If required, additional Helices can be added with the use of helical extensions. Plain extensions are then added until the lead section penetrates the bearing strata and the necessary or appropriate torque is achieved. The true Helix Geometry of each Steel Bearing Plate minimizes soil disturbance during installation.
Titan install Cantsink piles in many applications:
• House Elevation Foundation
• New Construction Foundation
• Underpin Exiting Foundation
• Foundation Repair
• Solar Panel Support
• Elevator Shaft Pits
• V Zone Foundations
• Sub and Deep Foundation Piles
• Tie Backs
