Improve Water Quality with Rip Rap!

Do you love swimming at your lakefront property? Have you noticed that your water quality isn't the best? When it comes to swimming in the lake, whether it be near your dock or along your shoreline, wouldn't it be nice if you could improve your water quality? When you install rip rap at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can! Read on to learn more about the many benefits of installing rip rap.

Improve Water Quality 

When you install rap rap, it acts as a natural filter for the lake water. Since rip rap is made from rocks of various sizes, it's a natural solution for improving your water quality and keeping your storyline intact.

Give Your Shoreline a Natural Look

Rip rap consists of various sizes of stone, so it's 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 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.
