Preservation of the church has become an important community event.
The historic presence of the church provides a key landmark for area residents, who were concerned about the threat to the building’s stability.
Excitement about this project, which will keep it secure for succeeding generations, prompted front-page stories in the local newspaper.
Extreme weather and its related effects increasingly threaten waterside communities like Davis, making foundation stability and secure elevation like the Progressive project at the Free Will Baptist Church more critical than ever. Storm and tidal surges, high winds, and soaking rains intensify natural climate conditions in water-adjacent localities, requiring sound foundation elements resistant to the effects of saturated conditions.
Cantsink helical piers offer a secure, cost-effective solution to storm-related threats for both new and existing structures, even for challenging historic structures like the Davis Free Will Baptist Church.
