When you buy a property adjacent to a river, pond or lake, you may need to protect your property. Water is one of the most destructive forces on Earth when left unchecked. Wave surges can reach your landscape and property, causing flooding and potential damage.
Water that infiltrates the soil below foundations can compromise buildings. Voids begin to form in the substrate, which leads to concrete sinking and buckling with no support. If you have a seawall dividing your property from the water, breaches in the structure can result in surface flooding.
In either case, the results are much the same – the potential for costly damage. Repairing your landscape, foundation or property is more expensive than dealing with the immediate problem. You do not need to replace a lake embankment to protect your land and home. Advance Concrete Lifting & Leveling can complete specialist repairs that will last.
Wave Surge & Erosion
Waves on a lake are constantly surging toward the shore. It is at this point that the water may meet resistance in the form of a bulkhead or retaining wall along the shoreline. Foreign objects that are smashed against the wall can cause damage, which can completely compromise the structure.
Erosion is another issue that impacts the integrity of seawalls. Water will wear the structure down over time, causing holes to appear in the concrete. Even moderate flooding can cause nightmares for homeowners, as landscapes are destroyed and the soil beneath the surface weakens.
Repairing a seawall makes more financial sense than replacing the entire structure. The latter involves demolishing the remaining wall, excavating any foundational material and rebuilding the wall. This process is costly and time consuming.
Advance Concrete Lifting & Leveling uses specialist tools and techniques to repair your seawall. We will reinforce the structure against the forces of Mother Nature.
