What exactly is a seawall?

A seawall, also known as a bulkhead or retaining wall, is a defence to reduce the effects of strong waves, and to defend coastal land from erosion. 

the term is typically used to describe the walls built on the land that run parallel to the coastline, but they may also apply to breakwaters which are built in the water itself. 

A seawall’s job is to hold back soil and act as a barrier from the water pulling the soil into the water, which causes erosion and property loss. A seawall is comprised of several items which are all critical in the long term performance of the structure. 

Seawalls encounter some of the most brutal conditions of any structure built today. From heavy loads and extremely corrosive salt water, to marine borer attacks and violent storms – convential materials just don’t get the job done. Today’s seawalls and bulkheads reuire advanced materials capable of performing over the long haul in this brutal environment. 

In the past, seawalls and bulkheads made of chemically treated wood, concrete, or steel deteriorated quickly in the marine environment. Now, property owners around the globe are enjoying picturesque, long-lasting seawalls made of advanced plastics, composites, and marine grade aluminum.


Bulkhead Repair & Maintenance

We recommend that you maintain your bulkhead and hardware. When the ground is saturated, the wall will have movement if the structure is weak or weakened over a period of time. Eventually reach a point to remove and replace.
