A seawall, also known as a bulkhead or retaining wall, is a defense to reduce the effects of waves and to defend coastal land from erosion. The term is typically used to describe walls built on the land parallel to the coast, but may also apply to breakwaters which are built in the water. To maintain your property value, you must secure and maintain your seawall. Heavy rains and hurricanes have caused problems due to the lack of maintenance and deterioration of your wall and berm erosion. Bulkheads can be made from many types of material such as, wood, vinyl (color options available), aluminum and concrete. We also specialize in bulkhead repairs.
Boathouses & Boat Lifts
All boat docks are designed for your specific property, watercraft, and entertainment needs. We incorporate your ideas and offer a few of our own to ensure you’ve considered all available options. Our concept design services are complimentary.
We encourage the use of stainless steel/aluminum/hot dipped galvanized boat lifts that have no metal parts in contact with the water. Lifts that are in the water are subject to electrolysis and salt water corrosion. In most cases metal parts that are in constant contact with a salt water environment only last about two years. For more information visit DECO Boat Lifts.
Docks & Piers
High Tide Marine Construction will custom design your dock, or pier to fit your wants and needs. All wood docks are constructed with top-of-the-line, marine-grade, pressure-treated lumber to ensure a long life for your dock.
Pile Driving & Setting
We set wood pilings that are 2.5cca treated for salt water. We have access from land or water making it easy to set pilings almost anywhere. It is very important that the pilings are set correctly to ensure a secure foundation. High Tide Marine Construction guarantees that your pilings will be set strait and even.
