F.A.Q Can I get away with a repair, or do I need an entirely new bulkhead?
Very common question. Obviously the cost of a repair versus the cost of a new Bulkhead installation is very substantial. A site evaluation from one of our experts will help to answer that question. Our first option is always a repair solution. On site we review structure and erosion control issues. Minor repair permits are much easier to obtain than New Installation Permits.
Bulkhead Repair Tip
Don’t wait! Bulkheads that need repair should be on top of the list for household projects. Unfortunately, we often see bulkheads that are collapsing in the water. Collapsed Bulkheads will drive the Installation Cost of a new bulkhead up 20% or more. With the exception of a substantial hole in your homes roof, there are not many repair projects in the home that could be more costly than a new bulkhead installation.

Bulkhead Repair Trivia
Timber Bulkheads are not lasting as long as they used to. Chemically treated wood has long been under attack by the marine environment and tougher environmental regulations have weakened the durability of this material. New, less effective chemical treatments needed to comply with regulations are causing marine structures built using chemically treated wood alone to deteriorate faster than ever before.
Living in the water next to your beautiful waterfront property is one of the most destructive pests on earth...the marine borer. These water-born termites eat wood to survive, destroying pier piles, and timber bulkheads with every bite. You will recognize the damage because at the water level, below the barnacle growth an hour glass formation on the pile will appear.
