Spring is finally here! Spring means warmer weather, and best of all, warmer weather means it's almost boating season! Boating at the Lake of the Ozarks is one of the top activities. However, if you own a home on the lake, you know that waves from boats have an impact on the stability and quality of your shoreline. One Source Services has the solution for you! Our rip rap installation at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great solution for stabilizing your shoreline this season. Still not convinced? Continue reading to learn the benefits of using rip rap in your seawall construction.

Give Your Shoreline a Natural Look 

Rip rap consists of various sizes of stone. Rip rap is a great solution for your seawall construction at the Lake of the Ozarks. Using stone versus concrete, wood, or vinyl will give your shoreline a more natural look.

Erosion Protection 

Rip rap works to absorb incoming waves, rather than reflecting it. This will help to keep the dirt at the bottom of your seawall from eroding away. It will also help to protect seawall footings form undermining. This is a wildly common problem for concrete sea walls at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Less Maintenance! 

Rip rap walls are created from stone piles. The stone piles are not formed or held together by any kind of material. This makes them self-adjusting to small amounts of movements from settlement. Even if minor damage occurs, the rip rap seawall can still function normally. Repairing any damage is extremely easy. To make a repair, simply replace a few stones and your shoreline will still be protected!

Protect Your Investment

When you own your home, you want to ensure that your investment is protected! Waves can have a major impact on your shoreline and seawall. Installing rip rap at Lake of the Ozarks can help protect your shoreline. If you are not planning to stay at your residence forever, the quality of your seawall can have an impact on the value of your home. Installing rip rap can help your home to appreciate instead of depreciating due to an eroding shoreline.

Install rip rap at the Lake of the Ozarks BEFORE boats create big waves that could potentially erode your shoreline. As you can see, there are a lot of great benefits of rip rap.  When you are ready to install rip rap to stabilize your shoreline give One Source Services a call!
