Benefits of a Seawall Inspection

SEAWALL INSPECTION MIAMI DADE

WHAT IS A SEAWALL INSPECTION?

If you are looking into buying a waterfront home, or have already purchased a waterfront home and have not thought about a seawall inspection, NOW is the TIME. American Home Detectives provides in-depth seawall inspections in Miami Dade County. A Seawall inspection provides an overview of the condition of your seawalls on waterfront properties. Inspectors assess the structure for cracks, rot, rust or other pertinent issues, and report any observed defects, maintenance required, and an opinion on the remaining useful life. To make sure that your waterfront property is safe and protected, it is very important that you get a seawall inspection. Before buying a waterfront home, ask the seller if a seawall inspection has been done recently, or work on negotiating it in before the sale.

DOES MY SEAWALL NEED TO BE INSPECTED?

If there is any question whether your seawall needs an inspection, ask the seller or previous owner. If you still can’t find an answer, contact us at American Home Detectives, and give us what information you do have. We can help you determine if you need an inspection.

A seawall is your property’s first line of defense against the damaging, erosive effects of water. Without adequate protection, moving water will erode your property and can potentially pose a serious threat to your home’s foundation and stability (particularly in homes close to the water such as the one pictured above). Further, a seawall is a significant investment. Seawalls typically range in cost between $250 and $800 per linear foot, depending on the materials used. Most seawalls have a lifespan of around 30 years, and ongoing maintenance is required. With such significant cost at stake a seawall inspection is indispensable for any buyer of waterfront property.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The cost of a seawall is based on length and other factors. American Home Detectives is dedicated to providing comprehensive seawall inspections in the Miami/Dade area. Please call 561-609-2274 today for your free estimate, or click Schedule Now.
