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.
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?
Mr. Level has experience reinforcing and repairing seawalls using an eco-friendly polyurethane foam to form a water-resistant seal. Our poly leveling method is proven to displace standing water, fill voids and cracks, and regenerate a water-tight barrier. Not to mention, seawall repair with Mr. Level’s polyurethane leveling method is about half the cost of replacing the concrete seawall entirely and is great for adding reinforcement.
