Why are Bulkhead Inspections Important?

Bulkheads – also known as seawalls – protect and stabilize waterfront property from erosion and are the first line of defense during storm events. Even minor structural deficiencies in your seawall can lead to substantial erosion and damage to adjacent buildings and structures. Our seawall inspections include a thorough evaluation of the structural integrity and estimated lifespan, which are provided in a detailed report identifying our observations and repair recommendations.

Symptoms Of Failing Seawall or Bulkhead

  • Corrosion and/or rust stains
  • Cracked or leaning panels
  • Erosion & washout
  • Low spots or depressions in the surrounding soil
  • Water pooling
  • Leaning cribbing / bowing whalers
  • Movement or uneven portions of bulkhead/seawall
