How do I repair a seawall?

Your seawall or bulkhead is failing and you’ve decided to have it fixed. What approach should you take? It depends on the nature of the failure, but leaking joints, cracks and soil erosion are primary issues. You can excavate and back fill the wall, but if it’s leaking, this is only a temporary fix.

Injection of the soil behind the wall with thin polyurethane resin through probes will fill voids beneath the surface, consolidate loose soil, and seal leaks in the wall itself. No excavation is required. The resin cures into a rigid, impermeable foam mass that will last decades. The foam is environmentally friendly: it is inert when cured and some products are compliant with NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for contact with potable water.
