Seawall Contractors – Seawalls help reduce the energy of the waves, therefore minimizing land erosion and damage around the area. Areas without a seawall are more prone to damage and even flooding. This is why we recommend you reach out to a seawall contractor. Our experts at Fender Marine are always there to ensure the right seawall is installed for your property and most of all the proper maintenance.
Depending on the land and area certain seawalls best fit some locations. Below we will discuss some of the types of seawalls and also how they help.
Curved seawalls mirror the shape of waves as they wash ashore. The design is able to deflect the wave and move it away from the structure. Curved seawalls are usually made of concrete.
These types of seawalls rely on heavy materials to give them stability. They are built in areas where strong soil runs right up the coastline. The seawall is anchored using the strong soil as a foundation.
Steel Sheet Pile Seawalls
Steel sheet pile seawalls are commonly anchored into the ground beneath them and to earth. The weight of both acts as a reinforcement to the wall.
Concrete Block and Rock Walls
Seawalls made of concrete blocks and rocks mounted on a man-made slopes usually are less expensive than other types of seawalls. However they are not as sturdy and long lasting.
When considering seawalls for your shorelines or any other bodies of water it is important to consult with a seawall contractor such as the team at Fender Marine Construction.
