What is Rip Rap?

Rip rap is natural rock placed along shorelines, stream-beds, bridge foundations, pilings, steep slopes and other shoreline structures to prevent water erosion. Also known as shot rock, rock armor or rubble, it is commonly used throughout Florida due to its natural beauty, strength and layer of protection it provides. 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.

Rip Rap is Easy to Maintain

Rip rap is very easy to maintain.  The stones used are self-adjusting to settlement and movement. If you have your wall inspected annually and repaired when required, rip rap will last a lifetime.  If rip rap is damaged during a strong storm or hurricane, ensure that the wall is inspected and repaired if needed.
