Before Failure – Warning Signs Ignored Property owners should immediately take action once indications of soil instability behind the seawall become apparent. In the example above, the cracks in the concrete slab behind the seawall indicate unstable soil. Unfortunately, this property owner ignored the problem.
After Failure – Catastrophic Property Damage This devastating event was completely avoidable. The backfill soil behind the seawall that held the house in place had leaked through into the lake on the other side. The homeowner decided to delay repair, and three weeks later the wall, patio and back of the house collapsed into the lake.
How will you repair my seawall?
See our Seawall Stabilization and Seawall Preservation pages for an overview of the Northeast Seawall repair process. However, each waterfront property, structure, and environment provide unique challenges and require appropriate repair and remediation procedures. Northeast Seawall will create a custom repair plan for your seawall.
will the repair process damage my property?
One of the many advantages of Northeast Seawall is our access to The Seawall Repair Network proprietary repair process. This process does not require excavation of your property. The majority of our projects require non-invasive repair procedures using light equipment.
will the repair be expensive?
The cost of repairing a seawall is generally 70% – 80% less than the cost of replacing a seawall. Our repair process and materials are rock solid and last for the life of the structure.
do you repair all types of seawalls? (concrete, wood, vinyl, etc.)
Our advantage at Northeast Seawall is our access to the SW-RP1 repair material. SW-RP1 does not care what your seawall is made of, and does not care what type of seawall you have. This material will permanently bond to, seal, and stabilize your seawall regardless of type.
how long have you been repairing seawalls?
The SRN proprietary repair process was developed based on an in-depth understanding that only comes from years of on-site seawall repair work. Northeast Seawall repair was chosen by the Seawall Repair Network on their technical qualifications and proven experience. We have been thoroughly trained in the Seawall Repair Network proprietary repair process.
