It’s time for the final reveal. Much like an Extreme Makeover Home episode, Henderson and Coker Contractors have resurrected a Lake Martin seawall that was a complete fail. This was no minor seawall fail. This was a seawall that had fallen over into the lake and taken a lot of earth with it – and dirt is dollars in waterfront real estate. They allowed me to tag along and film the stages of construction, and now that the water is down for the winter months, I can show you the new seawall from the ground on up.
This time of year is great for inspecting and repairing Lake Martin sea walls. As you can see from the video below, there’s a lot more to a seawall than the few feet that are exposed during the summer months. This is a project for the pros. The dirt beneath your lake home is the most valuable part of your lake investment, so make sure you protect it with a strong, well built sea wall.
Did you know that sea wall inspections are not typically part of the home buying inspection process? Buyers should contact a sea wall professional and have a separate inspection completed if they are concerned about the condition of a lake home’s seawall.
I can’t inspect your seawall, but I can help you with Lake Martin real estate. If you’re thinking about buying or selling a Lake Martin home, give me a call and let’s talk about all the factors to consider when buying or selling. I’d love to be your realtor. (334) 221-5862
