I have a dock on a saltwater tidal creek in Georgia. After 30 years, the pilings need replacing or some sort of "remediation." I wondered if coating the piling with cement would be feasible or economical.
Some of the pilings are underneath a screen porch on the dock or the dock decking-- making pile driving or "washing" them in questionable.
I was thinking about sawing a sono (sp?) tube lengthways and slipping it around the piling as a form then pouring quikcrete into the form. Should I knock off shell accretions and wrap the piling with a wire mesh, before pouring the concrete?
