3 Repair Jobs that Will Extend the Life of Your Seawall

Luxury waterfront propertiesWhen you own waterfront property, a well-maintained seawall is essential to its value and protection. Protecting the property from storm surges, corrosion, and damage can be stressful if you do not have the correct team on your side. Vogell Marine Inc. offers exceptional seawall repair in Palm Beach County to keep your property safe and beautiful.

When you are looking to extend the life of your protective seawall, the following three repair jobs are the best choice.

  1. Well Point Drainage System

A well point drainage system can help extend the life of your seawall by reducing the pressure that builds up against the structure. A series of well points are placed along a trench and then attached to a pump to help filter the pressure away from the site.

  1. Grouting Joints

When the joints begin to deteriorate, water can flow into areas it should not. By having these joints repaired with grout, the process is not only quicker but lasts longer than using organic materials.

  1. Secondary Anchors

Installing a secondary anchor to the seawall can extend its life by at least ten years. A second anchor can also be installed to support an existing anchor, which may be failing or not built properly to begin with.

If you are in need of seawall repair in Palm Beach County, contact the experts today at Vogell Marine Inc. You can speak to our marine contractors by calling (561) 848-3333.

How to Perform Exceptional Boat Dock Repair

Boat docks are beneficial in that they help ensure the security of your boat when not in use on the water. However, docks are constantly exposed to water, heat, and harsh weather, causing them to wear down over time. When you need your Palm Beach docks repaired, look to the experts at Vogell Marine Inc. for service.

Below are some tips our team utilizes to ensure we are providing the best repair job for your boat docks.

Ensure the wood is treated and sealed: When repairing a boat dock, we will only use treated and sealed wood for the job. This will help prevent the materials from rotting and keep the structure safe and secure while in the water.

Replace broken parts: If parts on the dock are missing or broken, we will work to replace them to the best of our ability. It is much easier, and most cost-effective, to replace one part now than the whole dock later.

Clean metal parts: If there are any metal parts or platforms on the dock, we will clean and treat them with a rust-resistant substance. This will ensure these metal parts do not easily succumb to rust and damage while exposed to water.

Check the screws: During our maintenance and repair, we will check all screws and fasteners on the dock to ensure everything is stable and secure. Tightening the screws on your dock will help avoid more severe damage down the line.
