What is Rip Rap?

Rip rap is used to prevent erosion. It is natural rock placed along shorelines, stream-beds, bridge foundations, and other shoreline structures. 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. 

How Long Does Rip Rap Last?

A properly maintained rip rap wall can last decades. The rocks utilized are sized from 6 to 12 inches in diameter. This ensures the eroded area is covered and the rocks remain permanently in place. At Wood Dock & Seawall, our professionals install stone that is natural looking, long lasting, and environmentally friendly.

  • Looks Natural – Rip rap arranged along the shoreline looks natural.
  • Creates a Natural Habitat for Wildlife – Provides a habitat for marine life and is commonly used by oysters, crabs and fish.
