Residential Seawall Repair
Residential Seawall Repair in Mississippi
Having a seawall can have many benefits if you are located near a body of water because living along the water’s edge can bring additional risks to your property. However, if the seawall is in disrepair or its structural integrity has been compromised, it may not provide the protection you expect. A seawall creates a barrier to keep water on the right side of your property and prevent erosion, sinkholes, and other dangers that can severely impact your home. A seawall that is in need of repair may not be a good barrier to the water.
If you have a pool, decorative area, playground, or garden and live next to water, it's important to protect it with a structurally sound and well-maintained seawall. Foremost Foundations & Construction provides dependable seawall repair to residents across Mississippi including in the cities of Jackson, MS, Gulfport, Biloxi, Meridian, Hattiesburg and Starkville MS.
Why You Need a Seawall to Protect Your Home
Here are additional reasons why a well-maintained seawall is good for your home.
Home value: You can increase the property value of your home by protecting the water-facing perimeter with a sturdy seawall.
Property protection: If you have spent time, energy, and money perfecting your outdoor living area and live adjacent to a body of water, it's vital to protect your investment.
Personal protection: If you've lived in the Gulf Coast area for any amount of time, you already know how unpredictable the weather can be. Having a functional seawall gives you additional protection.
Types of Seawalls
Seawalls are made of many diverse materials. The type of material used for your particular property depends on your budget, the elevation of your property, and many other factors. Here are the common types of seawalls protecting homes:
Wood Retaining Seawalls
Seawall Construction Methods
The type of seawall construction used depends on the kind of land, how much property you need to cover, and numerous other factors.
Curved seawalls create a curve around your property and disperse wave energy effectively. However, they require specific engineering, which increases the budget requirements.
Vertical seawalls are easy to construct and form a semi-straight or straight line along your property. They take more damage than curved seawalls.
Mounded seawalls protect shorelines following an emergency. They are not recommended for permanent use.

What People Are Saying
I Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Steve Folk, Bray Watkins and the entire Foremost team. I hired them because part of my driveway sunk nearly 6 inches at the entrance to the carport. Foremost was able to raise the driveway nearly even, which reduced risk of a blown out tire on our vehicles. Additionally, they installed 13 screwjacks under the house, which was dipping towards the middle and creating a bowl effect. We saw an immediate improvement. Their work and customer service were fantastic!
