    Sea Wall Repair or Replacement

    The time has come to do some major sea wall work at my place with imminent demise of a section of my 60 year old wall coming within the next couple of seasons. Does anyone have a referral on a GOOD sea wall person to come by and take a look while the water is down, one that is reliable enough to get on next years schedule with? I am actually thinking of a MAJOR replacement of all 200' or so and possibly demolition of the old motor house to dress the frontage up a little.

    There is a guy on here from the condo association that I used to live at. Our complex needed sea wall repair and he stated (if I recall correctly) that Ameren was not allowing straight wall construction any longer. I don’t know John Stern’s screen name on here but he may be able to offer some input on the research he did for Indian Pointe.

    You could look into a stone wall using ledge rock .

    The upfront price should be cheaper and the stones will last forever

    There is a lot of "natural" stone out there that is inappropriate to use in a sea wall or retaining wall application. A lot of it is stone that cannot withstand freeze thaw, or exposure to water unless it is underground and under pressure with its bedding planes oriented correctly. Digging the stone out of a quarry often exposes it to weathering it cannot withstand. I would opt for engineered concrete "stone" like the rest of my landscape walls long before using the cheaper natural stuff.

    I believe you've said before that you have ripraff in front of your seawall? Does that not keep the wall from failing? I just assumed the constant pressure would prevent it from falling in.

    Didn't your engineered concrete fail ?

    Ledge rock is approved by Ameren for seawall construction.

    Overall in my case the price was lower than poured and they can be moved if needed for erosion or bank movement.
    Not to mention they are better at absorbing wave action

    Engineered was a very loose term in the Ozarks in 1956 but all in all got a pretty good lifespan out of it.
