Types of Seawalls
No matter your needs, CDP has the solution! We specialize in several popular types of seawalls, including sheet piling, concrete block, and boulder walls. Our experienced team will assess the damage and make and recommend the best solution to ensure long-lasting and cost-efficient results. In some cases, a wall demo and replacement is the ideal solution. Other times, we can effectively repair the seawall back to its original working condition.
A brief description of each type:
This is our specialty and one of the most widely-used types of breakwall materials in the industry. It’s a cost-effective, durable option that can withstand years of abuse from waves and protection from erosion.
Our team offers expertise in the repair and installation of concrete breakwalls, including sealing of leaks and complete replacement. Concrete is a strong material and is readily available, making a great choice for some seawall applications.
The natural beauty of a boulder breakwall is unsurpassed, and CDP is fully-equipped and experienced to make it happen for your project. We source the best quality boulders in the area designed to provider decades of aesthetically-pleasing performance.
CDP specializes in sheet piling seawalls
We prefer to utilize sheet piles in our breakwall installations for several reasons:
- It’s a durable, long-lasting option
- Ease of installation and overall performance
- Cost-effectiveness and availability of materials
- It’s an ideal option for a wide range of situations
When you call CDP, we can discuss your options and recommend the ideal breakwall solution for your specific application.
Signs of a damaged seawall
Although seawall damage is often hidden from view, you can look for signs of damage using the tips below.
1. Obvious signs of damage
Check for obvious damage near or on the wall, such as cracks in the concrete, voids near the edge of the wall, erosion, rust, or sinkholes. Also inspect the wall itself for bowing or leaning. These are instances where a repair is necessary, otherwise it could lead to total seawall failure.
2. Signs of erosion and sink holes
Check for signs of erosion by looking for buildup of sand or earth in the water. You can also check for less obvious sinkholes and erosion by probing the ground near the wall. If the probe slides easily into the earth, there is likely a crack in the seawall allowing water to work its way in, and consequently pull earth back out into the water.
3. Structural damage up to 100 ft. from the seawall
Seawall damage can effect structures – such as buildings, concrete/block patios, and other walls – as far as 100 feet from the seawall itself. Underground water seepage will continue to travel inland until the repair is addressed. This can cause erosion, patio damage, structural sinking, and more. Even if the breakwall appears in good condition, there may be cracks or damage that are not obvious.
