Breakwall Repair & Maintenance | Lake Erie | Cleveland

Reinforce and repair your falling or cracked seawall

If you live along Lake Erie, you likely have a seawall, otherwise known as a breakwall, to prevent flooding and deter shore erosion. However, seawalls are commonly made from concrete, which means that the high-impact energy from the waves can cause it to fall or crack. For a cost-effective solution to replacing your seawall, homeowners find it far more beneficial to conduct regular maintenance for reinforcement and repair.

How to repair a seawall

Once damage is visible, there’s a small window of time for seawall repair. Does your seawall need to be repaired? Look for the following signs:
•    Are there any cracks or pieces broken off the cap?
•    Are any of the slabs beginning to deteriorate?
•    Are any of the concrete slabs learning?
•    Is your property losing soil behind the wall?
