Most seawalls in the South Shore area are dredge and fill concrete sea walls that were built in the 1960s. At this point, they are over 60 years old and will fail and need repair or replacement. We see and solve these problems quite often:
- Cracks along the seawall
- Sea wall movement in any direction
- Losing soil behind the wall
If you see any of these situations along your seawall, it is important that you repair it immediately. The problem will only get worse and cause future problems to a pool, house, or whatever structure is behind it.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Tie BacksIt is common for the seawall to be held up by a tieback to prevent the wall from bowing. If your tie-back is deteriorated, we can install a new one back to the dead man to reestablish a solid connection.Manta RayIf there is no existing support in the back of the seawall for a replacement tie-back, a Manta Ray can serve a similar function. The system is essentially driving an anchor deep in the ground to provide the support and tie back to the sea wall.Rip RapAdds support to the walls and helps dissipate the pressure of continuous waves and fluctuations in tides.Vinyl SeawallIf your seawall has deteriorated to the point of no repair, we can replace it with a vinyl structure or put a vinyl seawall in front of it.
|Whaler System||A concrete beam can be installed across the bottom of the concrete seawall to add stability.|
