At Waterline, we provide St. Petersburg with superior quality seawall construction. Whether for commercial or residential properties, we can assure a safe and beautiful structure for your clients or your family. Owning land along the water allows you to truly connect with the outdoors and take in the breathtaking scenery. However, Mother Nature is unpredictable, and storm waves can erode the shore over time, shrinking your property.
This is why proper fortification is so important: To act as a protective barrier that will simultaneously hold back the crashing waves and keep your foundation sound.
Benefits of Seawalls:
Living seaside is a luxury and retaining walls allow you to enjoy the waves without their damaging, erosive effects. Because while they are often beautiful forces of nature, they can also be destructive. Quality seawall construction protects your property from this damage. Erosion and flooding can eat away at your property line and in severe cases, even weaken the foundation. Retaining walls repel waves and hold back the ground, preventing it from washing away during storms.
Types of Seawalls:
There are a variety of affordable options for seawall construction in St. Petersburg. Based on high and low tide levels, wave energy, and length we can decide on the best material and design for your particular area. We often create structures that are comprised of:
- Rip Rap
Utilizing these materials, each style of construction has benefits that suite different needs:
Wood Seawalls are a low cost option built from solid pressure treated log piles. This option, while the most affordable up-front, does require minor maintenance and has a height limit.
- Rip Rap utilizes spaced materials to dissipate wave force while still allowing water to pass through the units. These are extremely durable and cost effective.
- Vinyl is comprised of UV resistant, vinyl pilings which offer an especially long life time and require only simple maintenance.
- Concrete is the strongest and most durable material we use. Also known as revetments or “mound”, concrete allows for many different styles and face shapes. The curved option available repels waves back onto themselves, reducing the energy necessary to rebuff them. This style commonly contains internal steelwork for increased strength and durability. The reliability that we provide gives you the ability to build freely and truly puts the power in your hands.
