Your seawall or shoreline is your first line of defense when a storm hits. Shoreline Protection in the form of a seawall, bulkhead or other armoring structure is the best strategy against the ongoing erosion and maintenance of your property. Unfortunately, seawalls are not commonly covered through a homeowners insurance policy, although they are often the most crucial structure when it comes to protecting your waterfront property. Ensuring that your seawall is in good working condition is one of the best ways to protect your home, business, or condominium. Many of the seawalls in Florida are nearing the end of their effective design service life and as a result of the corrosive waterfront environment many of these older seawalls are in need of repair, routine maintenance or a major reconstruction.
