We excel in employing the right methods, materials, and machinery to ensure the longevity and resilience of your construction projects along the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast. With years of experience and knowledge under our belts, our team is equipped to overcome the challenges your property may present.

Using the best machinery available is just one aspect of our commitment to lasting integrity. For instance, our foundations are driven with air hammers or vibratory hammers depending on the needs of your foundation.

WATERFRONT FOUNDATIONS

Specializing in waterfront foundations, we understand the importance of adhering to regulations such as those set by the National Flood Insurance Program. Lamulle Construction has the expertise and equipment to build raised foundations, drive pilings, or build concrete slab foundations specific to your building’s needs.

RAISED FOUNDATIONS

Raised foundations offer numerous benefits:

  • easier maintenance
  • reduced environmental impact
  • maintenance and installation of heating, cooling, and electrical systems become more convenient with a larger crawl space
  • easier access for renovations
  • preferred for areas prone to flooding

Our team can drive pilings for elevated foundations using round pilings or square timber poles. Whether your foundation needs to be raised by 3ft or 20ft, trust Lamulle Construction to deliver unmatched expertise and quality craftsmanship.

PROACTIVE DRAINAGE PLANNING

Water poses the primary challenge when constructing a raised foundation for a waterfront property. A poorly designed or implemented crawlspace can become susceptible to mold, moisture, and condensation, posing a threat to the entire structure. That’s why it’s crucial to collaborate with a team who assess factors such as soil conditions, ventilation, and drainage to mitigate the risk of water-related damage. Lamulle Constructions works closely with you and/or your architect and engineer to determine the optimal height, placement of flood openings, and selection of materials, ensuring durability throughout the lifespan of your raised foundation.

SLAB FOUNDATION

Does your project need a slab foundation? Not all waterfront properties require an elevated foundation. The benefits of a slab foundation:

  • Often less expensive
  • Slab can act as it’s own floor finish
  • Less maintenance than Raised Foundations
  • Improved energy efficiency (no airflow under the house)

In addition to elevated foundations, our expertise extends to slab foundations, ensuring comprehensive solutions for your construction needs.

SOIL SUITABILITY

On the right type of soil, a slab foundation can offer decades, or even centuries, of stable support. However, before recommending a slab foundation, Lamulle Construction conducts a thorough evaluation of your property. We consider factors such as soil composition, drainage, and site preparation for every foundation project. Our slab foundations provide water- and termite-proof stability at excellent value.

    I gave these guys a five star review 7 years ago when they built my pier and boathouse. Primarily because they were great to work with and were very professional. Now after a big hit from Ida I felt compelled to update. What can I say, my pier is perfect and my neighbors are gone. These guys know their business. Listen to them and pay the fair price they will quote. I've been thru several storms but this was a big test and EVERYTHING is perfect!! (more…)
