Protect Your Land By Keeping Water At Bay

Rivers, lakes, ponds, or even the ocean, water can be a relentless force that eats away at your property

Seawalls are kind of like an ultra-strong fence that's designed to keep water from damaging your land. If you've noticed the material along your shoreline slowly slipping into the water piece-by-piece, you very likely need a seawall to prevent further losses. Our team has been installing durable and attractive seawalls across Central New York for 17+ years.

What To Know About Seawall Construction

  • What's The Water?

    The type of water you're dealing with on your property makes a difference. Areas with high waves, water currents, or wakes, demand a different seawall approach than properties located along gentle lakes or ponds. 

  • Proper Design Is Key

    Building a seawall is much more involved than dumping rocks in a pile. Accounting for the land, shoreline, and water conditions, we'll use a design that suits your specific needs and ensures long-term performance. 

  • You Need A Permit!

    While some contractors ignore the permit process, it's an absolute must when building a seawall. Failure to do so could cause tens of thousands in fines, forced removal, and refusal of future permits. So, work with an pro contractor who follows the permit process!

Common Questions About Building A Seawall in New York

Questions about having a quality seawall constructed to protect your property? We have answers below! Don't see your question? Get in touch and we'll be happy to help

How do I know if I need a seawall on my property?

If you're located along any sort of waterway, you may need a seawall. Currents, waves, and wakes, eat away the material on your shoreline. Over time this puts your land at risk and is nearly impossible to reverse. Better to defend your land than try to remediate after it's eroded.

What areas can you build a seawall in?

We can build seawalls along lakes, rivers, beaches, oceanfront property, even ponds or canals! If you're dealing with land erosion due to water, then odds are excellent we can help you with a strong and attractive seawall. Get in touch with us and ask about your project!

Can you repair or restore old seawalls?

It depends on the exact condition of the seawall, but sometimes yes! However, if the seawall is in poor repair or wasn't built correctly in the first place, it may necessitate a complete rebuild instead of a repair. If you have an existing seawall, get in touch with our team!

What will you do with the demolished material?

Load it up and haul it away! We take care of any and all removed materials from your concrete demolition project, so you don't have to worry about dealing with tons of messy concrete waste. If you have other plans for the removed materials, just let us know.

What happens if you find underground lines or pipes?

Before we do any excavation work our team checks for the locations of underground utilities. However, there are times where a utility may not be marked on drawings. If we discover any unmarked infrastructure, we'll immediately stop to resolve the situation before continuing.
