What is Rip Rap?

Rip rap is natural rock placed along shorelines to prevent water erosion. Also known as shot rock, rock armor or rubble, it is commonly used throughout Florida. At Wood Dock & Seawall, our professionals install stone that is natural looking, long lasting, and environmentally friendly. The rocks utilized are sized from 6 to 12 inches in diameter to ensure the eroded area is covered and the rocks remain permanently in place.

Where is Rip Rap Used?

Rip rap is used to reinforce shorelines against water erosion. Rip rap is placed along shorelines, river or stream beds, bridge foundations, near pilings, on steep slopes and near other shoreline structures. Rip rap is frequently used in Florida due to its natural beauty, strength, and layer of protection it provides.
