Jason arrived on a Sunday afternoon to give me an estimate on the excavation work we needed done. Jason and crew arrived as scheduled to do the work the following week.

  • What kinds of water mitigation services do you provide?

    We can help you resolve water issues on your land with a variety of services including:● Seawalls● Boulder Walls● Drainage Systems● Land Drainage

  • What kinds of seawalls can you install?

    All types! We have experience installing steel sheet piles, stone rip-rap, manufactured retaining blocks, and more. If you're curious about installing a specific retaining wall technology, get in touch with our team and we'll be happy to help!

  • Do I need a permit to build a seawall?

    Absolutely yes! Many contractors will not bother to go through the permit process for a seawall, but that's a dangerous mistake. In Central New York, permits for seawalls must be obtained from either (or both) the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Environmental Conservation. Failure to do so can lead to tens of thousands in fines, forced removal of your seawall, and permit refusal for future seawall construction. It's simply not worth the risk to your investment to ignore proper permits. If you're dealing with a contractor who dismisses them, run in the other direction!

  • How much will my water mitigation project cost?

    You might not like this answer, but it depends! Steel sheet piles, for example, are typically more expensive to install than rip-rap or boulder walls. The ultimate cost of your water mitigation project comes down to your product, size, and location (among other factors). In order to get an accurate idea of the cost, get in touch with our team and describe your project!

  • Do you sell seawall and retaining wall systems?

    We happily install seawall and retaining wall products, however we do not sell them.
