Seawall Repair Five Dredge and Marine Can.

What to look for

Many times, seawall failings can be repaired before they become major issues. Waterfront property owners should be vigilant in checking for cracks, and any voids, or sinkholes that should be filled. If seawalls have severe cracks, the panels should be replaced before they completely break.

Cap Breakdown

Cracking or breaking away of the cap can be caused by corrosion, or panel movement. The breakdown impacts the cap’s ability to keep the panels aligned, and generally results in panels that sag, or are crooked.

Horizontal cracks may develop in the panels along the waterline, due to aging concrete, rod corrosion, or hydrostatic pressure. Eventually, these cracks lead to the panels breaking along the lines created.

Fast currents, and wave movements may cause a loss of berm at the bottom of the panels in the water. This deficiency results in:

  • Cracked or tilted panels
  • Rotated or broken caps
  • Gaps between seawall and support pilings
