Seawall & Dock Inspection (SDI) performs detailed above and below water inspections of marine structures such as seawalls and docks and provides clients with a detailed condition assessment of their structures along the East Coast, West Coast and Central Florida.

Owned and operated by a certified Professional Engineer who is specialized in Forensic Structural, Geotechnical and Coastal inspections and has extensive experience in all Coastal/Marine Engineering aspects including design, permitting and construction. We offer the following benefits compared to traditional inspection companies:

  • Experience – Sea wall and Dock assessments are not just an additional item to a home inspection it is our core business.
  • Fair & Unbiased – SDI is a division of an engineering firm and therefore are not in the business of selling you a brand new seawall, therefore our assessments are neutral and unbiased.
  • Thorough – Our detailed seawall and dock assessment report will advise you of recommended repair options and costs.
  • Licensed & Insured – All reports and final analysis performed by a certified Professional Engineer licensed in the State of Florida.
  • Knowledgeable – We have engineered, permitted, inspected and overseen construction of seawalls, docks and other waterfront structures throughout Florida for many years.
  • Timely – Our seawall and dock assessment repo rts can be digitally transmitted and are completed within a timely manner following physical inspection.
  • Value for Money – Utilizing a network of hand-selected and trained regional affiliates allows SDI to reduce costs, while still providing an unparalleled level of thoroughness.
  • Customer Feedback – Any questions, clarifications or concerns you may have after receiving your report will be addressed promptly by our principal engineer.

Additional Services:

  • Waterfront Due Diligence – We will review not only the seawall and dock but the overall waterfront development feasibility. This includes researching historic permits, coordinating with FDEP & USACE, and conceptual planning.
  • Design & Engineering – Some of the many benefits of having a Professional Engineer develop drawings and specifications is having the confidence that your structure will last and it also enables you to compare "apples to apples" when getting bids from contractors.
  • Permitting – In many cases the repair or replacement of a structure is simple to permit. However, in many cases the permitting can be cumbersome, expensive and time consuming and often requires an expert.
