What to Look for in a Seawall or Bulkhead Repair Contractor

Body - What to Look for in a Seawall or Bulkhead Repair Contractor (or Seawall Repair Companies)Not All Seawall/Bulkhead Repair Methods Are Equal

For decades, waterfront property owners like yourself have sought assistance with failing seawalls. And for decades, some contractors have made the problem worse by installing subpar repair materials like hydraulic cement, slurry, sodium silicate, and crushed seashells. These common solutions do not address the underlying problem – soil stability around the seawall.

By using these inferior methods, these contractors add tremendous lateral stress to the landward side of the seawall. This causes seawall movement, an increase of hydrostatic pressure, and eventually seawall failure.

Seawall Repair Cost vs the Price of Replacement or Neglect

Body - Seawall Repair Cost vs the Price of Replacement or Neglect (Bulkhead Repair vs Replacement)Your seawall, or bulkhead, is a structure that separates the waterway from your property. While the appropriate term for these structures is Vertical Seawall (a straight wall), the term Seawall is most commonly utilized.

Your Seawall Repair Cost is a Long-Term Investment

The practical functions of your seawall are critical for protecting your property:

  • Your seawall is the front-line defense against the loss of landmass into the waterway due to erosion, rain, irrigation, currents, and wave action.
  • Your seawall assists in maintaining proper water depths for your property.
  • Your seawall establishes your legally recognized property lines and water rights.
  • Your seawall is significant for the protection of ancillary structures like boat docks.
  • Your seawall is critical for the value and protection of your waterfront property.

Why Choose Repair for Your Concrete Seawall/Bulkhead?

Seawall property owners generally have four options when a seawall begins to develop damage.

  • Option #1): Ignore the problem – and risk seawall failure.
  • Option #2) Replace the seawall – and risk over-paying to solve the problem, enduring a disruptive and messy process, and potential damage to adjacent structures (including boat docks, boardwalks, and even houses and buildings).
  • Option #3) Repair with inferior methods such as hydraulic cement, slurry, crushed seashells, and sodium silicate – and continue to risk seawall failure because they do not address the underlying soil instability that puts unsustainable pressure on the seawall.
  • Option #4) – You can hire a Seawall Repair Network contractor who:
    • Has completed advanced geotechnical seawall repair training,
    • Uses the most effective seawall repair equipment,
    • Is able to complete your seawall repairs without risking destruction of property,
    • Is able to complete your project at a fraction of the price of replacement,
    • Is able to complete your project at a fraction of the time of replacement,
    • Provides a permanent and reliable seawall repair solution.

The best choice is clear. You can save yourself a lot of money, potential property disruption/destruction, stress & frustration by working with a Seawall Repair Network contractor in your area.

What is SW-RP1? Why Do You Need It for Seawall & Bulkhead Repair?

SW-RP1 for concrete seawall repair and bulkhead repair becuase bulkhead erosion repair requires durable material.SW-RP1 Is the Premier Solution for Seawall Repair & Bulkhead Repair

The hallmark of the Seawall Repair Network is our proprietary SW-RP1 repair permeation solution. Simply put – it is the best product on the market for seawall soil stabilization.

As a waterfront property owner, you may have been conditioned to believe that your seawall needs to be replaced every 25 to 30 years. This understanding is highly accurate in that if your seawall is allowed to become unstable, and if NO remediation to return stability is performed, then your seawall will most certainly fail after about 25 to 30 years.

Doing nothing when your seawall begins to show signs of soil instability is very similar to ignoring the ‘Check Engine’ warning light on your vehicle’s dashboard. It’s simply a bad idea – and your problem will only get worse and more expensive.

Seawall Repair Cost Is Minimal Compared to Seawall Failure Cost

Your seawall failure is ultimately associated with soil instability (and the associated accumulation of hydrostatic pressure from water build-up behind the wall). This fact begs the following question:

What if the soil supporting your seawall has its stability re-established prior to seawall failure, and the accumulated hydrostatic pressure (lateral force) is displaced and released?

The answer to this question clear. And the Seawall Repair Network is perfectly positioned to provide you with cost-effective solutions for the repair and preservation of your seawall and, in the process, help you avoid the high cost of total seawall replacement.

  • SW-RP1 is essential for sealing your seawall’s panel cracks, filling voids and defects behind your seawall, and perhaps most importantly, proving soil stabilization for your seawall.
  • SW-RP1 transforms the surrounding soil of your seawall into a water-tight impermeable mass, which blocks the transference of energy and lateral stress caused by the typical build-up of hydrostatic pressure behind the seawall.
  • SW-RP1 is environmentally safe and is certified to NSF (61-5) standards for contact with drinking water.

Your Seawall Repair Network contractor has been thoroughly trained, equipped, and tested on the correct installation techniques and usage of SW-RP1 for your seawall repair and preservation needs.
