WHAT IS A SEAWALL INSPECTION?
An inspection of your seawall provides an overview of the condition of the seawall 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.
WHY DO I NEED A SEAWALL 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. 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.
