Our seawalls are built to last using either steel, concrete, or vinyl panels typically with a concrete cap. A seawall reinforces your embankment and is designed to prevent erosion over time.

Concrete retaining walls can accompany a new seawall to raise the height of protection from encroaching tides or to create a separation between your yard and cap and can be customized to your specific needs. Our installation process results in a durable, long-lasting, and beautiful finished seawall that will be the envy of your neighborhood. Afterall, your new seawall should be a wise investment that creates unforgettable memories for years to come.

Mooring whips keep your boat from striking the dock and causing damage to the boat and dock. We only use marine grade cast aluminum braces that automatically adjust for tide changes and bring the whips up when not in use. The test precision ground tapered fiberglass poles are gel coated for long lasting durability and stand vertical when not in use keeping them out of the way of gear.
Pedestals add tremendous functionality to your dock or seawall space by providing an access point for plumbing and electrical usage. We will coordinate with your electrician and plumber to include this permitted accessory in our plans. Please let us know if you are considering this option in the early stages of your project.
Piling caps are designed to extend the life of dock and mooring piles. Cone shaped piling caps are also designed to keep birds from roosting on the pilings. We offer cone or flat piling caps, round, square or rectangle. They come in black or white as well as custome copper.
Ladders are a necessity on all docks, piers, and seawalls not only for access but also safety. We offer fixed straight ladders, fixed lift ladders and FloatStep ladders. The FloatStep ladder prevents marine growth which can form if a ladder is left in the water over long periods of time.
