Stabalize Your Shoreline with Rip Rap!

If you're new to owning lakefront property, you may not be aware of the impact big boats and waves can have on your shoreline. Now that you've made an investment in your lake home, you will want to make sure that you ensure your investment is protected! Our rip rap installation at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great solution for stabilizing your shoreline. Consider the many benefits of rip rap below.

About Rip Rap 

Rip rap is rock of various sizes that is placed at the base of seawalls. Its purpose is to absorb and dampen the impact energy of waves before they reach the seawall, reduce rebound waves toward your dock, provide bank stabilization, and lessen shoreline erosion. This keeps the stability of seawalls intact and protects your investment. Rip rap is not only important to the Lake of the Ozarks ecosystem, it is a necessity for both commercial and residential property owners. Rock Works also offers barge services and wave break installation around the Lake of the Ozarks area.

Give Your Shoreline a Natural Look

Rip rap consists of various sizes of stone, so it's a great solution for "natural looking" seawall construction at Lake of the Ozarks. Using stone versus concrete, wood, or vinyl will give your shoreline a more natural and appealing look. It also allows animals and organisms to pass through promoting the local ecosystem.

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 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 the settlement. Even if minor damage occurs, the rip rap seawall will still function normally. Repairing the damage is easy - simply replace a portion of the rip rap and your shoreline is still 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 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.
