Common issues with seawalls or retaining walls in MO are that they:
- Pull away at the top
- Bow in the middle
- Kick out at the bottom
Many of these issues are a result of construction practices (lack of reinforcement) or not built deep enough into the soil. Bad Missouri soil also plays a part by exerting pressure against seawalls, forcing them outward.
Marina managers and property owners at Missouri lakefronts could only replace the seawall in the past. Patented anchoring systems for seawalls by Gibbs Company are the affordable solution for seawall repair to avoid the high cost of seawall replacement.
Using the same technology used to anchor basement walls and commercial structures, the seawall anchor is installed past the bad soil into good bearing layers of soil and rock to lock your seawall in place. The system in environmentally-friendly and can be installed in restrictive locations.
Gibbs Company Seawall Solutions offers a patent-pending method of repair for concrete, steel, wood, and vinyl seawalls.
The system returns leaning seawalls to their original position. Gibbs Company Seawall Solutions can permanently stabilize these seawalls.
