How Do I Know If My Seawall Needs Repair?
Regular inspection of your seawall by our team will help spot any signs of damage that need repair. With that in mind, here are some signs that your seawall needs repair.
Missing Chunks or Voids in Your Seawall
Cracks in the concrete can cause voids in your seawall. These cracks can result in the erosion of concrete and failure of your seawall. If your seawall is missing large chunks of concrete, you should call our team to come and inspect it immediately to assess the level of damage and determine if it needs repair.
Sinkholes or Settled Soil Along Your Seawall
If you see sinkholes or soil settling near or in the ground along your seawall, these are signs of erosion. Erosion is known to cause a pressure imbalance that will damage the seawall slab or result in seawall failure. Call us when you notice this. We will assess the problem and do repairs to prevent seawall failure.
Cracks in the Sea Wall or Seawall Cap
Cracks in your seawall or seawall cap could result in the exposure of your wall’s steel rebar reinforcement. Consequently, this can lead to failure or corrosion of your seawall.
If you notice any signs of exposure or corrosion, then it’s time to call Salt of the Earth Inc. Hiring our team to come and repair your seawall will mitigate further damage that can lead to failure and expensive replacement of your seawall.
Widening or Large Voids Between Seawall Slabs
If the gap between seawall slabs seems to be widening, or they are larger than those between slabs, that’s a sign of broken or weak joints. Essentially, this is often due to anchors failing, leading to your seawall cap cracking. The worst part is: It can lead to significant damage to seawall slabs.
Leaning In or Out, Cracks, Bowing, or Crooked Seawall
Your seawall slabs are under continuous stress and pressure. And a pressure imbalance can result in a slab leaning, bowing, or becoming misaligned. If you don’t call professionals to come and repair the slab to restore the pressure balance, the slab can buckle. In turn, this can lead to complete or partial seawall failure.
