Revetment Wall Repairs
Specialist revetment wall repair services
Inspection and Reporting
A canal wall repair specialist can come to your wall by boat where weep-hole condition, construction joint condition, general wall health can be recorded and photographed. A comprehensive report is then prepared for you. This will include any recommendations for repairs or maintenance.
We will keep this report on file. If you enter into the recommended maintenance schedule, we will use it to compare the data every year to ensure your wall remains healthy and structurally sound.
Routine maintenance inspections allow our team to alert you to any changes in the wall condition and promptly arrange for repairs to be carried out.
Revetment wall subsidence
When material is lost from behind the revetment wall, subsidence occurs. This is very obvious when grass lumps, fences become uneven, or concrete and paving become uneven or crack. Concrete pathways adjoining revetment walls often conceal erosion. This is an important to be aware of and get routinely monitored.
When weepholes and construction joints no longer function correctly, subsidence occurs behind the wall. This client lost a lot of material close to the stairs and pool.
After correcting the front of the wall so the material is no longer being lost, we pumped sand into the void and returned the pebbles and pavers correcting the subsidence.
Revetment Rock Armouring
If the toe of the revetment wall is no longer adequately covered and is no longer to canal design, we call in our team from Gold Coast Barges to carry out correctional work. This work may involve rock armouring or sand replenishment depending on the design and the location of your wall.
