Storm Protection for Your Lake Erie Break Wall

If you live along Lake Erie, you know how powerful a storm can be. While you likely have storm protection for your windows and doors, it’s important to also remember your break wall (also known as a seawall).

Sure, the whole point of a break wall is to protect your home and land from powerful waves and flooding. However, the high-impact energy derived from the waves can make your break wall susceptible to falling and/or cracking. Here’s what you should do before and after a Lake Erie storm.

Ongoing Break Wall Maintenance

Taking into consideration the power of a Lake Erie storm, you may find yourself replacing your break wall more often than you’d like. Rather than replacement, a more cost-effective solution is to take ongoing preventative measures against storms and water surges. 

With poly leveling, a regularly maintained break wall should last about 40 to 60 years. This process utilizes an eco-friendly polyurethane foam injected into the concrete to form a water-resistant seal. This will:

  • Displace standing water.

  • Fill voids.

  • Fill cracks.

  • Regenerate a water tight barrier.
