Seawall Issues Continued: Why They Can Affect Selling Your Home

by Scott Myers

If you've been following our series of blogs on how issues with your seawall may affect selling your home, you've seen many things that can cause your seawall to fail. Your seawall is a large factor when it comes to selling your home, and if it is not in good condition it can significantly lower the price you're offered for your home or deter buyers from putting in an offer completely.

Here are a few more problems you may see with your seawall and what you should do to fix them. 

Seawall Cap Sheering

The sheering of the cap indicates significant wall movement. Depending on the amount of movement, either a new cap and tieback system or a new wall replacement will be recommended.

Seawall Cap Cracking

Significant cracking in the seawall cap as well as buckling in the seawall panes indicates seawall replacement is necessary.

Seawall Cracking and Bowing

Significant cracking and bowing of the seawall and seawall cap indicate major shifting of the seawall. Complete seawall replacement is necessary.
