Seawall Types

What Is a Seawall?

A seawall is a barrier custom designed and built at your boat dock or deck. It is designed to prevent erosion, damage, and flooding on your dock, deck, and/or boat from the sea, lake, or other body of water. If your boat dock is along a canal, bay, or other body of water prone to flooding, a seawall will protect your investment. Seawalls reflect or rebuff the energy of waves back into the body of water instead of letting them hit your land, your deck, your dock, or your boat. A vertical seawall is built upright, and a riprap embankment is a mound made of porous stones or sandbags placed in front of a vertical wall to protect it. The most popular choice for seawalls is vinyl sheet piling, as it is long-lasting, durable, non-corrosive, easy to maintain, non-porous, and attractive. Seawalls can also be constructed of concrete or wood.

Why You Need a Seawall

Without a seawall in SW Florida, your land may erode over time. This means that your boat dock or deck will become less stable, and your boat will be at risk as well. A rotted, damaged, or otherwise broken dock is at risk of sinking, and your boat is at risk of becoming untethered.

If your property has a lot of erosion, there are heavy rains or flooding in the body of water in which you house your boat dock and boat, or you’re concerned about damage or loss of your deck, boat dock, or boat, we will recommend building a seawall.
