How Marine Contractors in Florida Keep Your Seawall in Good Shape
A seawall is a valuable part of your property that helps to protect and preserve it. It’s an investment that should be maintained, so it remains in good shape, and you don’t have to face a time when it fails and needs replacement.
Seawalls undergo tremendous extremes of weather and wear during their lifetimes. The effects of wave action are cumulative, and water can be corrosive. This all adds up to an ongoing battle between you and the waves for the condition of your seawall.
Marine contractors in Florida, such as the team at Vogell Marine Inc., are the partners you need to maintain the integrity and functionality of your wall. We have the skills, experience, and equipment to totally inspect the wall and identify any problem areas that need attention.
Vegetation is one of the things we look for during an inspection, for example. Plants can spread their roots throughout the structure, leading to cracks and damage. We also check out the condition of the weep holes that allow the release of water that backs up behind the structure. If these holes are blocked by debris, seawall damage will begin to occur and increase over time.
We are also alert during our inspections for signs of insect damage to wooden seawalls as well as missing pieces and gaps in the structure.
If we find any issues that should be fixed, we are fully prepared to repair them right away, because problems that are left in the hands of Mother Nature will not benefit from her tender touch. Using our marine contracting services will extend the life of your seawall, allowing you to get the most benefit from it and value from your investment.
You should always keep a close eye on your waterfront structures because problems can occur at any time. If they do, don’t hesitate to call our marine contractors to make things shipshape again.
