How Well Does Your Seawall Protect Your Westport Ct Shoreline Property?
A properly designed and built seawall prevents erosion of your shoreline. But, a seawall does not protect property on the ocean side of the wall. Seawalls that were not correctly designed or constructed can actually accelerate erosion of your beach property because of how it interacts with the tide or simply because it separates the beach from the sand reserves on beach ridges and inland dunes. At Salt of the Earth, Inc. we provide the seawall repair Westport Ct needs.
What Sort of Seawall Does Your Westport Ct Property Have?
The best seawall for the strongest wave action is one built with large concrete blocks that are set deep into the soil or down to bedrock. For less forceful wave action, a sufficient solution is one of rocks or boulders. For areas with even milder wave action small and large rocks along with concrete blocks, riprap, is an effective way to prevent erosion. This approach, called riprap, can be planted on to give a natural appearance. Riprap can also be used on the ocean side of a more substantial seawall to prevent the waves from undercutting that wall.
