Creating and Installing Sturdy Seawalls for Waterfront Areas Around Foley
Many people find the sound of crashing waves to be relaxing, but it’s a whole different story when salt water dirties and damages your property or when high winds make being in your backyard unbearable. Edgewater Marine Construction, Inc. constructs retaining walls that are built to last. We’ve been doing seawall installation and repair for decades and have gained the admiration of communities around the Foley area. We respect the nuances of marine construction and thus follow bulkhead building codes to the letter.
Retaining walls aren’t as easy to build as they look. Typically, they’re the works of civil engineers, who design for resistance against powerful natural forces. They can be made of concrete with steel, stone with grout, treated wood or even vinyl. Drainage needs to be taken into consideration, which for many projects means deep excavation and backfill with pervious materials. In many cases, further reinforcement with riprap is recommended. The bulkheads we build are both attractive and strong. We can stabilize canals against the waves of passing boats. As with all of our projects, we’ll work through your requirements to create the right seawall for you. We regularly handle complex hydraulic scenarios, using scientific principles as our guide. We also do piling replacement ,so if you have other structures in need of repair, we can most likely take care of it.
