Riverside & Pickering Marine Contractors understand the value of waterfront property and the necessity of preserving it. Since 1990, we have helped hundreds of residents and businesses on the seacoast of Maine and New Hampshire preserve and stabilize their buildings and shorefront.
Experienced Shorefront Stabilization
Acceptable methods of shorefront stabilization have become increasingly difficult to permit, and the expense can be overwhelming. We have the experience to get it right.
Shoreline Stabilization & Management
Where shoreline erosion is a problem, shorelines should be stabilized. There are a couple of methods available today. Vegetative methods are becoming more popular every day, although structural methods such as rip-rap, timber bulkheads, steel, or vinyl sheet walls are most common. Identification of the cause of the erosion problem is essential for selecting the appropriate technique to remedy the problem. In considering the severity of wave and wind erosion, offshore bathymetry, and the potential adverse impact on other shorelines and offshore areas, we will assess your site and recommend the most effective solution for your project.
A retaining wall prevents the erosion of your shoreline while creating a decorative wall or garden. Made from stone, brick, concrete, vinyl or steel, Riverside & Pickering Marine Contractors will properly design and install your new retaining wall to last for years to come.
If you have the good fortune of owning a building over the water it may be old and fragile. We have successfully completed building stabilization projects and understand the issues that must be considered in undertaking a project.
