Event Details

Toms River Township will be hosting an informal Home Elevation Seminar for residents wishing to learn about the process involved in raising their homes.

 

Presenters include:

-Roderick Scott from Louisiana, representing the Home Elevation industry,  who will present a Power Point presentation on the techniques utilized to elevate homes after Katrina and other disasters.

-Gary Seider, P.E. and Steve Gencorelli, P.E., from Chance-Hubbel Power Systems who will present a Power Point presentation on Helical Pull-Down Micro piles for home elevation, which is a technique utilized to elevate homes without moving them off of the property.

-To be confirmed: A Structural Engineer will also speak.

 

The two-hour Seminars will be held at the Toms River East High School Cafetorium from 9:00-11:00 am and 11:00 am-1 pm.

.

Tickets are free, but residents must sign up to attend, due to strict fire code regulations.

 Mayor Tom Kelaher said, "For property owners who may need to raise their homes, it is critical that you get the best possible information out there from licensed professionals.  This seminar is not a sales pitch, and you will learn what is involved in raising your home and how long a typical project will last." Roderick Scott, a representative of the house movers industry said, "Property owners will learn how the structural elevation process works and the equipment the industry professionals use in order to reduce the risk of hiring non-qualified contractors/individuals soliciting business in the area and to increase property owner confidence in this process."

 

We will be videotaping the presentations to post on our website for those who cannot attend.
