4 Benefits of Shorelines and Seawalls, Part 1

At Vogell Marine, Inc., we are experts when it comes to seawall repair in Palm Beach County. Our full-service marine construction company has been providing quality services for over 25 years. We are always working towards providing the best workmanship and products in the area.

Shorelines and seawalls are a great way to make coastal areas safer and much more enjoyable. Below are two benefits these structures have for residents and community members.

  1. They Provide Defense

A well-built seawall provides exceptional defense against storm surges, high waves, and flooding for coastal areas. These structures are constructed vertically, or near-vertical, to reduce the amount of energy the waves produce and then reflect it back towards the ocean. This process dramatically reduces erosion, which helps waterfront properties stay protected.

  1. They Provide Recreation

Seawalls are also great at providing recreation for residents and visitors. People can walk along the wall and enjoy the sights of the ocean and ocean life. Seawalls are great for all sorts of exercise, such as biking, sightseeing, and even act as a resting spot after a long day. Due to the protective nature of seawalls, they keep people protected as they enjoy the various activities they can perform.

Make Safety Your Top Priority for Marine Construction

When you are looking to hire a contractor for marine construction services, your first priority should be the company’s safety record. There is nothing more critical than selecting contractors who are determined to protect all workers involved in the project, theirs and yours. You also want to ensure that the company works to affect the environment as minimally as possible during the construction process.

Building on the water can provide a variety of hazards, such as drowning, making contact with contaminated water, electrical hazards, and more. When you are working to build your property, you want to ensure the company you choose takes all of these risks into consideration. You will want to thoroughly investigate the company’s rating and how they handle their day-to-day tasks.

For the workers, you want to ensure the proper equipment and clothing is being worn on the job. Suitable footwear to reduce slipping, vests, and paired up on jobs are all requirements for marine construction services. You also want to ensure exceptional care is given to their equipment. Everything must be correctly installed, operated, protected, and maintained to prevent a machine malfunction or electrical hazard in the water.
