Why Does Your Shoreline Westport Ct Property Need a Seawall?

If you do not protect your shorefront property in Westport, CT from the sea surges with storms and just the daily beating of waves on the shore result in erosion, loss of land to the sea. Erosion reduces your property value as it whittles away on the size of your land. Damage to building foundations is a common occurrence with homes and businesses located close to the shoreline. When there is no seawall to protect against the force of storms and wave action, extensive flooding will commonly occur.

What Kind of Seawall Do You Need for Westport Ct?

There are several ways to construct a seawall. For strong action of waves the best approach is to use large concrete blocks set deep in the soil or down to bedrock. A good option for areas with moderate action is a seawall made with rocks and boulders. For lesser wave forces riprap is a good solution. This is a collection of large and small rocks and concrete blocks. To provide a natural appearance for the shoreline you can also plant these areas. In addition, riprap can be placed on the seaward side of your concrete block seawall to reduce undercutting by wave action.
