Enduring Seawall Repair in Gulfport

For residential or commercial property owners in Gulfport, life along the Mississippi Gulf Coast brings beautiful views and access to the ocean. It also occasionally brings storms and other events that can threaten your home or business. A seawall can keep saltwater away from your land and protect your real estate for generations. However, high tides and currents sweeping in from the gulf take their toll. With the right seawall repair in Gulfport, you can bolster your retaining wall to stand firm against hurricanes and damaging tides.

What Kind of Seawall Repairs Can Restore My Property?

 

All seawall repairs require quality materials and the knowledge of experienced engineers and technicians. It's important to move quickly when it comes to repairing cracks in the seawall and stabilizing surrounding soil. When done correctly, repairs can strengthen the soil as well as the seawall that keeps saltwater and fresh water away from your residential or commercial property.

Here are a few examples of seawall repairs in Gulfport that can prevent further erosion and enhance the surrounding soil or bedrock:

  • Pressure Release Technology: Remove water behind the seawall to eliminate future damages.

  • Repair Caps and Panels: Using flexible epoxy and high-strength concrete, we can enhance the integrity of the seawall.

  • Install New Anchoring System: Retrofitted anchors can improve stability and increase the useful life of your seaside retaining wall.

 

Rebuilding a seawall requires a lot more time and expense than repairing one. Inferior cement, crushed seashells, and sodium silicate used in legacy walls don’t hold up for long to retain the stability of the surrounding land. When older seawalls begin to crumble, it’s important to restore their functionality. However, we may recommend rebuilding the wall in case of severe damage.

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!
