Before & After MSI Rip Rap Install
ARMOR YOUR SHORELINE SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT LAND LOSS
While a natural shoreline can be beautiful, it can also get easily destroyed and/or degraded over time by weather and wave action - erosion. Installing Rip Rap consists of adding stone, rock, or rubble along where the water meets the shore to keep the land from being further harmed and wearing away over time. This preserves the land you do have as well, preventing further damage to your property line inland.
PROPER INSTALLATION OF RIP RAP IS VITAL TO EFFECTIVENESS
We understand that your property is a big investment and erosion is serious business. Installing Rip Rap is a great step to controlling this erosion but it must be done correctly. Our decades of experience and hundreds of satisfied customers means you can rest easy knowing your Rip Rap will be done right the first time and last for years to come with little upkeep or maintenance.
Key Benefits of the Rip Rap Installation
As mentioned above, installing Rip Rap will help to ensure you don't lose more and more of your shoreline over time. However, there are other benefits of Rip Rap installation as well.
Rip Rap is not just used for where the water meets the shore - it can also be used on natural hills and slopes to protect from the eroding effect of rain or draining water
Rip Rap is such a protective and added benefit, it may very likely increase your property value
Rip Rap done well is attractive and increases your property's aesthetic
Unlike a simple seawall, Rip Rap absorbs water and wave energy instead of deflecting it back outward
If you have very high or intense erosion risk, you can combine Rip Rap with a seawall for added protection
