Bulk Heads Construction & Repair: Bulkheads are retaining walls that are most often referred to as seawalls, bulk heading, or rip rap. They are manmade structures constructed along shorelines with the purpose of controlling beach erosion. Bulkheads stop the process of erosion so that waterfront property is protected.
Construction materials commonly used include wood, wood pilings, vinyl, steel, and concrete. Sometimes large boulders are stacked to form a wall.
Age and heavy exposure to the elements may indicate that a bulkhead is in need of maintenance or that the bulkhead has fulfilled its service life. In some cases, the bulkhead may be damaged due to loads in excess of what it was originally designed to withstand.
Docks: A dock or basin is a structure extending along the shore or out from the shore into a body of water, to which boats or yachts may be moored. They can also be used for other recreational vehicles. At Coastal Marine Construction LLC, we can build docks on land or by water. We can install both floating and fixed docks. We can construct any dock to fit your needs using either classic wood boarding or a newer composite decking.
Pier: A pier extends out in to the water typically used to maximize waterfront area. Since they extend out in to the water, they are also a great for achieving desired water depth. This allows for a greater possibility of boats and or yachts you can accommodate. Piers for residential use are usually made from wood pilings with reinforced braces and joists then decked with either composite or wood decking.
