Prevent Shoreline Erosion with Rip Rap!

It's no secret that we have some steep hills around the Lake of the Ozarks. Drive down any lake road and you will more than likely be driving down a steep curvey hill. Between steep hills and incoming waves from large boats, it's a good idea to stabilize your shoreline. Installing riprap at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great way for stabilizing your shoreline. Read on to find out what the benefits of using rip rap at the Lake of the Ozarks at your lakefront property.

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!

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.

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.

Now that there are far fewer boats on the water, the water is much calmer. Now is the perfect time of year to have your rip rap installed at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our team won't have to fight the incoming waves during the installation process and your shoreline will be ready to absorb those big waves once all the boats start coming back on the water.
