Hillsboro Beach Seawalls


In the modern world, erosion and rising water levels are taken more seriously. Due to consistent tidal and wave action and storms that damage seawalls in Hillsboro Beach, erosion is always dominant and continuously accelerating. Homeowners in Hillsboro Beach and the rest of South Florida tend to underestimate how fast water levels are rising. Which is why it’s imperative to have a company like PileDrivers Inc. to perform seawall repair when it’s needed. They’ll take the necessary steps to ensure that you’re up to date with your seawall repair.

For all Hillsboro Beach seawall repairs, you can count on PileDrivers Inc. to provide steel, stone, wood, or continuous slabs of concrete to ensure the repair is completed properly. Many other seawall repair and construction businesses will claim that excavating behind the wall to repair and reinforce prior work is needed. Some others will suggest replacing the weak areas of the wall or entirely construct a new seawall. But these options, typically, aren’t in the best interests of customers looking for cost-effective solutions. PileDrivers can recommend you the best options and apply them in repairing your Hillsboro Beach seawall.

Below are some Seawall options:

Vinyl Seawalls

Vinyl sheet piling has become very popular in seawall construction and repair due to its affordability and cost-effective methods. It’s so popular, in fact, it’s regarded as the top-pick material in Hillsboro Beach. This is because of its resistance to seawater and ultraviolet rays. Additionally, the vinyl material is also lightweight, easy to transport, and easy to install with a limited amount of heavy machinery involved.

Concrete Seawalls

Concrete seawalls are installed for different purposes. For PileDriver’s installation process, we first start by precasting concrete slabs on site. When it’s cured, the slabs are lifted into place with the help of high-pressure water pumps. After, a seawall cap is formed and set atop of the seawall where the back of the seawall is backfilled with dirt.

Construction for concrete seawalls can last about 6-10 weeks – depending on the footage. But once complete, a concrete seawall reinforced with steel can hold up for roughly 50 years in an environment like Hillsboro Beach.

Steel Seawalls

For those who wish to perform low maintenance, you’ll want a steel seawall. Because of their resilience and durability, steel seawalls are often chosen the most in the industry. This makes their high-cost well worth the investment. With a “dead man” piling system, the seawall is anchored and can’t be pulled away from the shoreline due to the combination of steel and concrete used as an underwater weight. In an environment with weather like the city of Hillsboro Beach, we recommend maintaining your steel seawall once every 5 years. If properly maintained, healthy steel seawalls should last a good 25 years.

Wood Seawall

The most common in waterfront properties are wood seawalls. You’ll see wood seawalls mostly on golf courses and other areas with lots of landscaping. They’re aesthetically pleasing and can be installed in most freshwater locations. When installed, pilings are first measured to the height of the water and then driven down into the seafloor, where concrete will be poured into the center of them.

If you want wood seawalls installed in saltwater, you might want to reconsider; it’s recommended that you have a concrete or vinyl seawall installed instead.

Rip Rap Seawall

The most effective form of erosion control, these seawalls are the most common seawall type in the US. These seawalls are usually constructed with stones, rocks, or other materials arranged along a wall that serves as a natural barrier. These seawalls shield shorelines, bridge abutments, and more and are most effective in absorbing waves heading towards the shore or other structures.

Some other types of rip rap seawalls are:

  • Limestone Rip Rap
  • Concrete Rip Rap
  • Stone Rip Rap
  • Rock Rip Rap
  • Granite Rip Rap
