Why Does Your Shoreline Darien Ct Property Need a Seawall?
If you do not protect your Darien, Ct shoreline property from daily wave action and especially from the surges of occasional storms you will experience erosion of your shoreline as land washes out to sea and you will end up with less-valuable property. When there is no seawall to protect your property you can get damage to the foundation of your business or home when they are close to the shore and your entire property may be flooded when there is no seawall to protect it.
What Kind of Seawall Do You Need for Darien Ct?
When your shoreline property is exposed to maximum forces from the sea the ideal solution is a seawall made of concrete blocks that are set down to the bedrock or at least very deep in the soil. When your land is exposed to moderate forces of nature a seawall of boulders and concrete blocks will be sufficient. And, for properties that don’t feel the full force of the sea as seawall of riprap is sufficient. Riprap is a collection of small and large rocks as well as concrete blocks. With this approach you can plant along your shoreline and have a natural appearance to your seawall. Riprap is also used on the seaward side of a concrete block seawall to reduce undercutting by action of the waves.
