If you own waterfront real estate on a lake or river in New York or Connecticut, you have made a significant investment that needs to be protected. Rip rap describes a range of rocky material placed along shorelines, bridge foundations, steep slopes, and other shoreline structures to protect from scour and erosion. Rocks used range from 4 inches to over 2 feet.
For shorelines continuously exposed to running water this is an excellent solution. Erosion can compromise bridges, wash out adjacent roadways, or cause loss of property; preventing erosion helps to keep everyone safe. For Shoreline properties in greater Danbury, Waterbury, Brewster, and all surrounding areas.
Typically, rock will be dumped onto the shoreline and called rip rap. Our process of physically setting the rock in place is not only visually appealing, but it will function to better withstand ice pushes, shoreline erosion, and will prevent much of the rock from tumbling into the water.
What sets us apart is our crews dedication to making your property not only safe but aesthetic. We’ll source the rock, engineering a lasting solution, provide all the heavy equipment and experienced personnel and provide reinforcement you can bank on
